Alumni Day 
Well Attended 


A spirit of good time and fellowship was 
the prevailing atmosphere at the 48th an- 
nual Alumni reunion held Friday, May 31, 
at College Park. Alumni from as far back 
as 1881 up to this year's graduates were on 
hand. Dr. R. Sumter Griffith of Waynes- 
boro, Virginia, was the oldest graduate pres 
cut and he did not miss any part of the 

Rossborough Inn 

The high light of the day was the recep- 
tion at the famous Rossborough Inn held 
from 3 to 6 p. m. It was the formal opening 
of the restored landmark which has been re- 
furnished in period style. Many friends of 
the University were also invited but those 
who rejoiced the most in seeing the campus 
shrine restored were the Alumni. 

Activities for the Alumni began at 10 
a. m. when they assembled at the New 
Administration Building, registered and 
got a program for the day. President Chas. 
\V. Sylvester, '08, lead the return of a large 
representation of old grads. Maryland's new 
buildings presented something for all to see 
and kept the morning hours busy. 

At 1 p. in. the annual Alumni luncheon 
was held at the University Dining Hall, 
where the class reunions held sway. Those 
twenty -five year-old boys of 191? were in 
the spotlight. It was the largest twenty-five- 
year reunion any class has ever held. Vice- 
President Massey was the spokesman for 
his classmates. A birthday cake provided 
by the wives was the center decoration of 
their special tabic. 

Annual Meeting 

Immediately following lunch the annual 
meeting of the Association was held. Presi- 
dent Sylvester introduced all of the past 
presidents present, among whom were Dr. 
Fletcher P. Veith, '91. Mr. Henry Hob, 
apfcl. '93, Dr. F. B. Bombcrgcr. '94. Mr. 
William Croft. '00, Mr. J. Hanson Mitch- 
ell. '98, Dr. T. B. Symons, '02. and Mr. 
E. F. Zalesak, '25. Following a few re- 
marks by the President a proposal was made 
to change the constitution in order to pro- 
vide for a wider representation of Alumni 
by colleges. Also the reorganization gives 
to the Alumni of each college the privilege 
of naming their representatives to the

The sudden death of Willard M. Ilille- 
geist, '12, came as a shock to his fellow- 
workers and intimate friends who have had 
reason to appreciate his endeavors as loyal 
Alumnus to his Alma Mater. He has served 
the University for more than twenty-five 
years from assistant in the office of Ad- 
ministration to Director of Admission, the 
position he held at the time of his death. 
June 2nd. 

"Hille." as he was familiarly called, was 
not universally famous, yet it may be won- 
dered if any other servant of education in 
his generation ever more truly deserved the 
gratitude of the State of Man land. The 
great intelligent understanding and sym- 
pathy with which he was endowed can well 
be found in the memories of those many 
Students and parents who sought his coun- 
sel when youth began the road to higher 

His was a career of devoted service which 
he pursued with an indomitable spirit that 
never surrendered or ever took account of 
the limits of human endurance. His time 
was your time and for that of his fellow 

A certain genuine enthusiasm for the 
welfare of his Alma Mater stimulated his 
efforts. Kindliness was his outstanding qual- 
ity, a humane cooperative quality, his most 
notable capacity. Nothing pleased him as 
much as the privilege of contributing to 
the completion of a task which he con- 
sidered worthy of his efforts.

Home Economics 
Held Open House 

Alumnae, students, parents and friends 
of the University were guests of the Col- 
lege of Home Economics at their open 
house party held May 1" 18 -19. Dean 
Marie Mount, assisted by her staff, pre- 
sented many interesting exhibits made avail- 
able by the facilities of the new building. 

A special meeting of Alumnae of the 
College was held and definite steps were 
taken for the organizing of our Alumni 
Club composed of Home Economics 

Miss Carolyn Chcsscr was appointed as 
general chairman for the organization com-

Maryland Alumni News 


P. \V. Chichester, '20 
Newly elected President of the Univer- 
sity of Maryland Alumni Association of 
the College Park Schools is one of our 
most eminent Alumni. P. W. Chichester, 
a graduate in Agricultural Education, came 
from Southern Maryland stock and has 
distinguished himself as a scholar, a sol- 
dier and a citizen. Pete, as he is better 
known by his classmates, interrupted his 
college education and joined the army 
during the World War, where he distin- 
guished himself as a capable officer. He re- 
turned to college following the war and 
resumed his educational studies. After grad- 
uation he became associated with the Uni- 
versity Extension Service in boys' club 
work. His capability as an organizer and 
leader soon won for him the position as 
County Agent for Frederick County. There 
again his ability to meet and work with 
other people attracted the attention of a 
widely known feed concern, Deitrich and 
Gambrill, where he is sales manager and 
a member of the firm. 

Pete is an Old Line Alumnus through 
and through and has always been active in 
Alumni affairs. He figured prominently in 
the first Alumni organization in Frederick 
County. When the annual Charter Day 
Celebration is held he can always be count- 
ed on to have a good representation pres- 
ent from his county. lie has been a mem- 
ber of the Alumni Board for Eve years and

Nurses Celebrate 
Fiftieth Anniversary 

By Lili ian IIoki . '23 

It is interesting to note that the two 
largest Nursing Schools now prominent in 
Maryland almost exactly tie for enrollment 
as the State's oldest school of nursing, the 
Johns Hopkins School and the Univcrsih 
of Man land School opened in the same 
year, 1889. The first Superintendent of 
Nurses of Maryland University School of 
Nursing was Miss Louisa Parsons, an Eng 
hsh nurse, who in the year 1880 graduated 
from the Nightingale Training School at 
St. Thomas Hospital. London, this school 
having been founded in 1860 by Florence 

In recognition of Miss Parsons, through 
the courtesy of St. Thomas Hospital, grad 
nates of the University of Maryland School 
of Nursing have the distinction and the 
privilege of wearing the Florence Night 
ingale cap. Miss Parsons, twice decorated 
by Queen Victoria for nursing service in 
the British campaigns of 1882-1885 in 
Egypt, at her death in 1916 bequeathed 
her medals to the University School which 
she had founded. She left also to the nurses 
of this school a legacy of ten thousand dol- 
lars which has been used to establish a 
Nurses' Benefit Fund. The Nurses' Home 
which was opened in 1922 is named in 
Miss Parsons' honor. "The Louisa Parsons

Superintendent of Nurses. In her honor

Janet Hale Scholarship for postgraduate 
study to the graduate ranking highest in 

During the fifty years of its existence, 
the graduates of the University of Mary- 
land School of Nursing with those of other 
s; hools, have labored zealously for the ad- 
vancement of nursing through revision of 
the curriculum from time to time, careful 
development of legislation affecting the 
practice of nursing, assisting in organizing 
mutually helpful professional associations 
and adjustment to changing educational 
and social standards.

The Celebration 

On Thursday, May 30th, the celebration 
of the 50th anniversary of the School of 
Nursing was ushered in by way of a buffet 
supper at 806 Park Avenue. Here gathered 
many alumnae to renew old friendships 
and to make new ones. Every class was rep- 
resented except those of 1892 and 1899. 
We were proud to have with us two mem- 
bers of the class of 1893, Mary E. Corn- 
man and Clara Mergardt (Mrs. Jesse Reif- 
snider). The guests were seated according 
to classes. There were shouts of joy and 
surprise upon meeting unexpected class 
mates and friends. Songs were interspersed 
with the supper — several classes enter- 
tained us with class songs. A so-called "Pro- 
fessor Quiz" program was conducted by 
Mrs. Troy who chose individuals at ran- 
dom and quizzed them regarding the ac- 
complishments of some member who has 
been or is outstanding in the profession. 
This proved to be both entertaining and 

Alumni Reunion Held 

Friday morning a goodly number of the 
alumnae joined with the graduates in at- 
tending a corporate communion service at 
old St. Paul's Episcopal Church. This was 
followed by registration, a tour of the 
hospital and luncheon. At two o'clock 
the seniors presented a "Study in the Care 
of an Obstetric Patient" and "A Family 

Miss Mary E. Cornman, '93 
Case Study"', in Gordon Wilson Hall. The 
highlight of the celebration was the ban- 
quet at the Hotel Emerson on Friday even- 
ing. Miss Ruth Roush, President of the 
Alumnae Association, presided at the 
speakers' table. Dr. Powell M. Davvley of- 
fered the Invocation. Mrs. John Paul Troy 
was toastmaster. Dr. H. Clifton Byrd, 
President of the University, extended greet- 
ings to the alumnae and guests. A history 
of the Nursing School was read — the pe- 
riod from its organization in 1889 to 1920, 
by Miss Bernice V. Conner, '12, and the 
period from 1920 to the present by Mrs. 
Anne Hoke Hull, '3 5. Dr. Joseph L. Fen- 
rich, Lecturer in Philosophy at Salem Col- 
lege, West Virginia, talked on "Private 
Worlds" and left with us this message: 
"Don't take yourself too seriously." The 
banquet program ended with the awarding 
of prizes to the graduating class by the 
Director of the School of Nursing. Dane 
ing followed until 1 a. m. 

Saturday morning many of the guests 
traveled by bus with the graduating class 
to College Park, where formal graduation 
exercises for the 20 graduates of the Uni- 
versity concluded the Anniversary program. 

The celebration was a memorable oc- 
casion, especially for those of the earlier 
classes who gather to relive the past, to 
view the present and to glimpse the fu-

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

By W. H. ("Bil!") HOTTEL: 

54 Athletes Honored; 
Many Stars Lost 

Maryland said goodbye to a number of 
the finest athletes who ever have worn its 
colors when 54 varsity men were awarded 
letters and 61 freshmen got numerals at 
an assembly on the campus during Com- 
mencement Weel . 

"M's" in varsity sports went to 18 in la- 
crosse. 12 in track, 16 in baseball and 8 
in tennis, and 24 of these will be lost. 

Eight members of the lacrosse team that 
won the national collegiate title in 1939 
and again this year have finished, including 
Bill Cole. Bill Bond, Jim Heil, Milton Mu- 
litz, Oscar Ncvarcs, and Leo Mueller, reg- 
ulars, and Jack Grier and George Lawrence, 

Track Celebrities Lost 

Only six 1940 letter men went from the 
track team, but included arc Jim Kehoe, 
Mason Chronister, and Alan Miller, three 
of the greatest ever to compete for the 

All were 1940 Southern Conference 
champions and were members of the relay 
quartets that won three races and national 
fame at the Pcnn Carnival last April. 

Baseball, too, lost only seven of its 16 
letter winners, but numbered among them 
are Lefty Earl Springer, the Terp's best 
pitcher in years, now with the Baltimore 
Orioles; Pershing Mondorff, another fine 
hurler; Adam Bengoechea, the best 1940 
infielder, and Bob Burns, a topnotch 

Tennis lost just three of its eight insig- 
nia winners, but they were Allie Ritzen- 
berg, Nate Askin, and Jay Phillips, the No. 
1. 2, and 3 men of the squad and the first 
two named one of the best doubles com- 
binations in the South. 

Some Capable Rookies 

Lacrosse, track and baseball should be 
considerably bolstered from talent on the 
1940 yearling outfits, but the frosh net 
team, the only spring squad to finish in 
the "led." will not furnish much help. 

Presentation of the letters was made by 
Dr. R. V. Truitt, in lacrosse; Dr. Bird 

George Lawrence (left), football and la- 
crosse player, and Jim Kehoe (right), prob- 
ably the greatest trackman in Maryland's 
history, received the highest athletic 
awards. Lawrence received the Sylvester 
watch, presented by the class of 1908 to 
the man who typifies the best in college 
athletics. Kehoe won the Linhardt ring 

as the outstanding Mankind athlete. 

Pitcher Earl Springer won the Bo/ie 
Berger award as the outstanding senior in 
baseball and Leo Mueller and Oscar Ne- 
vares were presented with Edward Powell 
awards in recognition of their outstanding 
service with the lacrosse team. Powell was 
the "father of lacrosse" at Maryland, 

Hopkins of Bel Air, Md., in track; James 
Shumate, '20 of Chevy Chase, Md., in 
tennis; and Prof. Charles S. Richardson, 
retired, in baseball. 

Gold awards were made by the coaches, 
H. Burton Shipley in baseball, John E. 
(Jack) Faber in lacrosse, Geary Epplcy in 
track, and Leslie Bopst in tennis.

Sports Year Notable 
Despite Grid Losses 

Maryland had a good year in sports - 
in fact, a notable one — despite the start 
tliat gave only two victories in nine fool 
ball games. No other varsity team, though, 
finished on the wrong side of the ledgci 
and collectively they compiled (>2 per cent. 
'victories, despite tough schedules were 
fated in all pastimes. 

Outstanding, of course, was the winning 
of the national lacrosse championship for 
the second year in a row, and the cap 
tilling ot three titles in the I'enn Relay Car- 
Inival at Philadelphia, to he the leading 
team in those classic games. 

renins also enjoyed the best season in 
the history of the game at College Park, 
only one match being lost in nine played. 
The victory list doubtless would have been 
Substantially increased had not rain pre 
vented several matches. 

Freshman teams also did well, turning 
in 63 per cent, victories, with the yearling 

lacrosse squad being the only outfit to have 

'a clean slate.

lacrosse star, lias signed for his second sea- 
son with the Washington Redskins. Meade, 
who now scales 205 pounds, 15 more than 
when in college, appears in great trim. 


Leo Mueller and Jack Mueller, cousins 
from Baltimore, who teamed up effectively 
on Mankind's championship lacrosse team 
during the recent season, may pair at ends 
on the Terp eleven next fall. Leo played 
almost regularly in 1939 and lack impres 
sed in spring practice. 


Outfielder Hugh Keller, despite a late 
slump, led the Mankind ball team in bat- 
ting during the 1940 campaign with an 
average of .392. Infieldcr Adam Bengoe

Class Reunions 

In the afternoon class reunions were held 
in various places after which every one 
joined the trek to the famous Rossborough 
Inn. Every part of the reception had the 
colonial atmosphere. The young ladies in 
attendance were dressed as colonial dames, 
the servants who were serving refreshments 
were in costumes and to top it all, Eve 
colored musicians dressed in slave regalia 
played and sang spirituals and plantation 
songs in the garden. Using a slang ex- 
pression, "no kiddin', it was a most hos- 
pitable affair." Everyone seemed to have 
had a delightful time. 

Alumni Dinner 

The climax of the day began at 6 p. m. 
in the University Dining Hall with the an- 
nual Faculty Alumni Dinner. Several very 
interesting remarks were made by our sen- 
ior Senator, Millard E. Tydings, '10, Con- 
gressman W. P. Cole, '10, and Col. O. H. 
Saunders, '10. Colonel Saunders spoke on 
a very interesting subject, "The Problem 
of National Defense." 

Retiring President Sylvester presented 
the newly elected President, Mr. P. W. 
Chichester, '20. Following a few remarks 
by our illustrious Alumni, the entertain- 
ment program was turned oxer to Robert 
Bradley, '39, a well known pianist and 

\ special vaudeville show was presented 
instead of a long speaking program. 

After the dinner all Alumni were in- 
vited to attend the 78th annual Com- 
mencement Ball in the Gym Armory. 
There Little Jack Little's nationally famous 
dance and radio orchestra provided splen- 
did music. At 1 a. m. the curtain fell on 
one of the most enjoyable Alumni Davs 
ever held.

Thoughts of Interest: 

Political Conventions 

by Dr. Lawrence V. Howard 

Chairman, Dcpt. of Political Science 

One of the most interesting devices 
through which democratic government 
functions in the United States is the na- 
tional convention which each party holds 
once even four years. It is truly an Amer- 
ican institution with no counterpart in any- 
other country of the world. It is doubtful, 
however, if there are very many people 
who know how this means of nominating 
candidates for the Presidency and Vice- 
Presidency came into existence, how it is 
constituted and the basis upon which its 
powers rest at the present time. 

First In Baltimore 
The first nat onal nominating convention 
ever to be held by any American political 
party met in Baltimore in 1831. It is inter- 
esting to note that the convention was in- 
troduced by the first real minor party to 
arise in the United S'tates, the Anti-Ma- 
sons, which had been organized in 1828 
in opposition to the Masonic order. The 
delegates nominated a Marylander, Wil- 
liam Wirt, as the Presidential candidate 
of the party. This convention is noteworthy 
not only because it was the first one ever to 
be held but also because the candidate, 
when informed of his nomination, went be- 
fore the convention and delivered a most 
unusual speech of acceptance. He declared 
that he himself had been a Mason and that 
he had never seen any harm in the organ- 
ization until the Anti-Masonic Party had 
been founded on the principle of opposi- 
tion to secret societies. He further declared 
that Masonry as it was conceived by the 
party "was not and could not be Masonry 
as understood by Washington" and con- 
cluded by informing the delegates that "if 
they had nominated him under a misap- 
prehension he would permit them to sub- 
stitute another name for his own." The 
convention voted unanimously, however, 
to stand by the nomination. 

Two-Thirds Rule 
Baltimore was also the scene of the sec- 
ond and third national conventions to be 

held in the U. S. In 1831 a conven- 
tion of National Republicans nominated 
Henry Clay for the Presidency and in 1832 
a Democratic convention nominated An- 
drew Jackson. Ever since that time the 
convention has been the accepted means 
by which the parties nominate their candi- 
dates for the highest offices within the gift 
of the American people. 

Not only did the campaign of 1832 give 
us the national convention but it also es- 
tablished several practices which have been 
followed almost without exception to the 
present day. The National Republican 
convention appointed a committee to no- 
tify Clay of his nomination, a practice 
which has been followed by all conven- 
tions since that time with the exception of 
that of the Democratic party in 1932 and 
1936. The Democratic convention of 1832 
adopted the two-thirds rule, under which 
a candidate had to secure the vote of two- 
thirds of the delegates in order to receive 
the nomination. This rule was consistently 
followed by the Democrats until its aban- 
donment by the convention of 1936. 
Congressional Nomination 

The convention method of nominating 
candidates for the Presidency and Vice- 
Presidency seems to have been adopted 
somewhat by accident. Prior to the cam- 
paign of 1832 candidates were nominated 
by congressional caucuses, which consisted 
of all the members of the party in the 
national Congress, or by other meetings 
of party leaders. The Anti-Masons were 
a new party, however, and had no mem- 
bers of Congress nor any state organiza- 
tion. They decided therefore to call a na- 
tional convention to nominate their candi- 
dates and the other parties followed suit. 
It should be added, however, that the con- 
vention would probably not have been 
adopted by the other parties if there had 
not been general dissatisfaction with the 
earlier methods of nomination. As a mat- 
ter of fact the caucus had never been pop- 

ular. It was alleged to be undemocratic 
and so was easily swept into oblivion by 
the forces of the new democracy under 
the leadership of Andrew Jackson. The 
new party alignments which were being 
forged required a method of nomination 
which would eliminate bitter personal rival- 
ries and consolidate diverse sectional in- 
terests into parties that were truly national 
in character. This the conventions were 
able to assist very materially in accom- 

Radio Shows Up 

Just as the caucus was swept away by the 
forces of Jacksonian democracy in the first 
half of the nineteenth century so it ap- 
peared in the early years of the twentieth 
century that the convention might be sup- 
planted by a more democratic method of 
nomination, the Presidential primary. 
Within the states the direct primary was 
beginning to be widely used for the nom- 
ination of state officers, and there were 
demands that it be applied also to the 
nomination of the President and Vice- 
President. When in 1912 the Republican 
convention refused to nominate Theodore 
Roosevelt, the popular choice in the state 
primaries, the demand for a change was 
intensified. President Wilson in 1913 urged 
Congress to enact legislation providing for 
the choice of Presidential candidates by 
primary vote without the intervention of 
nominating conventions. His proposal was 
not adopted, however, and since that time 
little has been heard of it. The national 
convention not only survived but appar- 
ently is stronger today than it was a gen- 
eration ago. This is in spite of the fact that 
many of its weaknesses have been revealed 
to the public for the first time since the 
radio came into general use. 

Public Opinion 

\t the present time the Democratic 
convention is composed of twice as many 
delegates from each state as the state has 
members of both houses of Congress. The 
Republican convention was similarly con- 
stituted until 1916 when a new system of 
apportionment was adopted under which 
the number of representatives from each 
state was made to depend in part upon the 
actual Republican vote cast in the state in 
the last election. In over one-half of the 
states delegates to both national conven- 
tions arc chosen by state conventions

Many Alumni Attend 
Summer School 

Main old grads were among those seek 
ing advanced degrees by attending sum 

lncr sessions. Most ot them were high 
school principals and teachers, also a few 
were jusl keeping theii teaching certificates 
up to date with advancing information. 

Two of the outstanding features of tins 
year's session were the "World Today" 
special lectures on the European situations 
and a modern dance class by the W omen's 
Physical Education Department. The mod 
cm dance is a new feature this yeai and is 
very popular. The lectures on the "World 
Today" which were held last year are gain- 
ing in popularity under the supervision of 
Dr. Reuben Steinmeyer, professor of I'o 
litical Science.

\cisit\ in L898. He latei became one ol 
the nation's outstanding men in the high 
waj engineering profession, 

In the same \eai ot Ins graduation In

nois and was Highway Engineer for the 
State of Minnesota. He was author and 
member of the National Research Board, 
and was a delegate to the Pan American 

Road Congress in Buenos Aires in 1923. 

In 1933 he received the Bartlett Award 

for his outstanding contribution to high 
way progress. 

Dr. Johnson's contributions to the en- 
gineering profession and his services to the 
College of Engineering were lauded by his 
associates and now his successor. Dean S. 
S. Steinberg. Dr. Johnson's efforts were 
unselfish and untiring when working for 
the good of his profession. In addition to 
his many duties as Dean of the College 
of Engineering he served as a director of 
the Volunteer Firemen's Short Course, 
which began at the University in 1930. His 
interest and loyalty to the University has 
already been greatly missed and his fellow 
workers deeply regret learning of his death. 
The memories of his contributions and 
genuine help to those students who stud- 
ied under him and with him will be chcr 
ished by them always. 

Dr. Johnson was residing in Baltimore 
at the time of his death. The News takes 
this occasion to express sincere condolence 
to the bereaved family on behalf of the

Professional Associations 
Elect New President 

Dr. Charles Bagley, 04, M.D. 
When the annual meetings of the Pro- 
fessional School Alumni Associations were 
held during Commencement Week, three 
elected new presidents. The Medical Alum- 
ni elected Dr. Charles Bagley, Jr., '1)4. 
M.D., who graduated from the old Col- 
lege of Physicians and Surgeons. He is a 
member of the American Medical Associa- 
tion, chairman of the Membership Com- 
mittee of the Baltimore City Medical So- 
ciety, participated in the meeting of the 
Southern Medical Association held in Bal- 
timore in 1936. He is a member of the 
University Medical School Staff as pro- 
fessor of Neurological Surgery and has for 
many years been an active member of the 
Alumni Association. 

Dr. T. Ellsworth Ragland, 11, Phar.D. 

The Pharmacy Alumni have elected Dr. 
T. Ellsworth Ragland, '11, Phar.D., a most 
active Alumnus. He is known as a "go- 
getter" and has been active in both the 
state and city pharmaceutical associations. 
He belongs to the Shrine and many other 
organizations. His activity in the Alumni 
Association has been practically continu- 
ous since graduation. When the Charter 
Day Committee needed a good worker Dr. 
Ragland gave generously of his efforts. He 
will make a good president for the Centen- 
nial Celebration of our School of Pharmacy 
in 1941. 

Dr. Brice Dorsey, '27, D.D.S. 

Out of the Dental Alumni campaign 
Dr. Brice Dorsey, '27, D.D.S'., emerged 
victorious to head the Dental Alumni for 
the ensuing year. Dr. Dorsey has been a 
member of the Dental School staff prac- 
tically ever since graduation. He also car- 
ries on dental activities with the United 
States Public Health Department as con- 
sultant dental specialist at the Marine 
Ilosital; he is chief of dental staff at our 
own hospital and a member of the staff 
at Maryland General Hospital. He has 
long been a member of the Alumni Asso- 
ciation and was quite active in the Dental 
Centennial Celebrations this year. 

The Law Alumni have retained John E. 
Magcrs as president and the Nurses elected 
Miss Ann Rousch this past January. 

Carl Droop, 91, Dies 

Mr. Carl A. Droop, '91, died July 9 at 
his summer home in Bluemont. Va. He 
was president of the E. F. Droop & Sons 
Company, well-known music dealers of 
Washington. He was a civic leader, being 
a member of many organizations. 

Carl, with his brother Edward, took 
over his father's business soon after grad- 
uation and has kept the name of Droop 
prominent in the music field ever since. 

Political Conventions 

(Continued from Page 4) 
rather than by popular vote. Even when 
chosen by the latter method there is no 
assurance that the delegates will vote for 
the popular choice. The convention has 
complete freedom in the selection of the 
candidates of the party. 

The powers of the convention are not 
based upon law but are derived from past 
practice and party rule. It acts under no 
legal restraints whatever and its members 
are responsible to no authority, state or na- 
tional. Despite this absence of responsi- 
bility, however, the convention is usually 
responsive to public opinion. A failure to 
heed the demand of the rank and file of 
party members is to invite defeat for the 
party in the November election. It is also 
to invite the revival of suggestions that the 
convention should be supplanted by some 
other nominating device which is more 
democratic in its method of operation. 
With over a hundred years of history be- 
hind it, however, the place of the con- 
vention as a nominating agency seems as- 
sured for a good many years to come. 

Honored — The Leslie Dana Gold Med- 
al, awarded annually for outstanding 
achievements in prevention of blindness 
and the conservation of vision, will be 
presented this year to Mr. John M. Glenn, 
of New York City, Honorary Vice-Presi- 
dent of the National Society for the Pre- 
vention of Blindness. Mr. Glenn, who is 81 
years old, was born in Baltimore. He re- 
ceived an LL.B. degree from the Univer- 
sity of Maryland in 1882.

Football Card Finally 
Is Straightened Out 

A kink that ensnarled Maryland's foot- 
ball schedule last fall when Thanksgiving 

Day was changed from the last Thursday 
in November to the third finally has been 
ironed out. 

This change in Turkey Day and the nec- 
essary shifting of games forced the calling 
off of the Washington and Lee tilt last 
fall and setting a new date for the clash 
this season. 

With all the adjustments made Mary 
land, in its nine-game schedule next fall, 
will play Rutgers in Baltimore on new 
Thanksgiving Day, November 21, and 
will meet Washington and Lee at College 
Park on November 30 in the finale. 
May Resume Old Date 

It is expected that the Terps and Gen- 
erals will resume their Turkey Day series 
that was tossed into disorder by President 
Roosevelt's shift, in 1941. 

It also was decided to play the game 
with Western Maryland on October 26 at 
night in the Baltimore Stadium. 

Maryland really has an almost "home" 
schedule, as only one game is too far dis- 
tant for its followers to see. Four games 
will be staged at College Park, two in the 
Baltimore Stadium, and the tilts with V. 
M. I. in Lynchburg and Penn at Philadel- 
phia are within fairly easy auto driving 

Gather September 2 

Practice will start September 2 and 24 
members of last year's squad, 14 of whom 
are letter men. and 1ft sophs will be asked 
to report then. 

The revised schedule: 

September 28 — Hampden-Sydney, at Col- 
lege Park. 3:00. 

October 5 — Pennsylvania at Philadelphia. 

October 12 (Homecoming) — Virginia, at 
College Park, 2:30. 

October 19 — Florida, at Gainesville. 

October 25 — Western Maryland, at Balti- 
more Stadium, 8:15. 

November 9 — Georgetown, at College 
Park, 2:30. 

November 16 — Virginia Military Institute. 
at Lynchburg Stadium. 

November 21 (Thanksgiving) — Rutgers, at 
Baltimore Stadium, 2:30. 

November 30 — Washington and Lee, at 
College Park, 2:00. 

Some Random Shots on Sports 

Al Heagy will be the line coach, Al 
Woods will handle the backs and Jack 
Faber will be the coordinator in the Mary 
land faculty-alumni football coaching staff 
this fall. They doubtless will gather nearly 
every evening during the grid campaign to 
make plans and map out action for the 
next day. 

Heagy also will help do the scouting, 
as will Woods to some extent, but the lat- 
ter and Faber will be with the team at 
the games. 

Roy Mackert, head of the Physical Ed- 
ucation Department, who has been inval- 
uable as a scout for many years, also will 
continue in that role. Mack, as a rule, sees 
only Mankind's last game of the season. 

Jim Kehoc, who got his degree in June 
and who now is running for the Washing- 
ton Athletic Association, set a new mark 
of 1:52.2 in winning the National A. A. 
U. Junior 800 Meters title on the Pacific 
Coast. The Bel Air speedster is just reach- 
ing his peak and should do his best run- 
ning in the next several vears. 

Alan Miller, quarter-mile ace; Mason 
Chronister, great mile runner, and Francis 
Beamer. football end, all of whom got their 
diplomas at the June Commencement, 
have been commissioned second lieuten- 
ants in the Marine Corps. 

Quite a number of other athletes, in- 
cluding Ralph Albarano, Frank Skotnicki 
and Bob Brown, well-known gridders, 
have gone into the army on the one-year 
commission basis. Those who meet the 
test and care to stav may remain. 

Oscar Nevares, attack, and Milton Mu- 
litz, defense, were named on the all 
America collegiate lacrosse team. It was 
the second year in a row for Mulitz. 

The Terps also were officially notified 
that they had been named as the team 
champion for the second successive season. 

Jim Wharton, Maryland's crafty 160- 
pound junior center, is ill and it is not 
certain that he will be able to report for 
practice with the rest of the squad on 
September 2. He's an exceptional perform- 
er for his size. 

Jack Faber, of the football coaching 
staff and the head mentor of the title 
lacrosse team, is vacationing in Pennsyl- 
vania, but will be back in plenty of time 
to get ready for grid practice. Jack is an 
udent fisherman and will spend most of 
his time trying to hook 'em. 

George DeWitt, Maryland's all-South- 
ern Conference basketball player, has been 
ost. In scholastic difficulties in the last 
semester of the 1939-40 term, George left 
school and even if he should re-enter, 
which he is not expected to do, would not 
be eligible for the next court campaign. 

Leon Vannais, basketer and left handed 
pitcher, and a big asset to both squads, has 
been reported as not returning, and Burton 
Culver, fine centcrfiekler, also has gone 
out for scholastic reasons. 

These happenings do not brighten the 
outlook for Burton Shipley, who tutors 
both the basketball and diamond squads. 

Jack Warficld, a good quarter-miler and 
clever little halfback, also has been floored 
by the books and will be among the miss- 
ing when school reopens in September. 

There also are reports that a couple ace 
members of the lacrosse team are debat- 
ing whether or not to return. There al- 
ways arc casualties of this sort but the 
blows appear to be heavier than usual. 

Merle DuVall who, next to DeWitt, 
was Maryland's best basketer last season, 
also plans to lay off the indoor pastime 
this year. DuVall, who plays baseball as 
well as football, thinks two sports, along 
with his studies, are all he will be able 
to handle during the 1940-41 term. Ship-

I have understood many of oui Mmnni 
arc under the impression the University 
at College Park is more or less idle or in- 
active during the summer months. This 
idea is far from being a fact, for if you 
made a stud} of the activities at College 
Park, yon would 
find that college ac- 
tivities continue for 
most of the sum 
mer. After Com 
mencement in June 
there is a short 
breathing spell he 
for the Rural \\ 
men's short course 
begins. This short 
course is held to benefit the main rural 
women who attend from all rural six 
tions of Man land. Some people have said 
that these women take this trip to College 
Park just to take a short vacation awaj 
from their husbands and families. I do not 
blame these ladies if this were a fact. 
However, after investigating you will find 
that the University offers to these women 
a well organized course of instruct on well 
suited to their need m their c\cr\da\ work 
at home.

you find the University Campus filled with 
teachers from all over Maryland and ad- 
joining States. Most of these teachers come 
for a six-week course of instruction, which 
is required ever so often of our elementary 
and secondary school instructor. To visit 
College Park at this time you would find 
it to be a very live and active institution. 

After teachers' summer school is over 
there is a ten-day short course given to the 
411 Club boys and girls of Maryland. 
These club members come from all rural 
sections in Maryland. While at College 
Park these youngsters are given instruc- 
tions in camp life, leadership, agriculture 
and home economics. This is a very worth- 
while activity of the University, as most 
of us will agree we will never solve our 
farm problem until we have more trained 
brains to assist in solving this problem.

able experience and has written a number 
of books on the subject. 

Dr. Joyal, a graduate of the University 
of California, comes to Maryland from the 
Department of Education and Director of 
the University College at the University of 
Colorado. He has also served as school ad 
ministrator in the California public 
schools. Dr. Joyal comes to Maryland as 
a Professor of School Administration and 
will teach courses in secondary education.

Commencement Exercises 
Held--69 Get Degrees 

Dr. II. C. Byrd, '08, President of Ins 
Alma Mater, delivered the address at the 
first Summei School Commencement at 
which 69 students received then degrees, 
The exercises were well attended and a 
splendid program was presented. 

Excerpt From Dr. Byrd's Address 

'"The teachers of the country, both in 
'die grade, secondary schools and colleges, 
aave not only great opportunities but tre 
nendous responsibilities. It is their oppor- 
tunity to provide for the youth of America

bilities afforded the youth of other na- 
ions. They have great responsibilities be- 
ause they are exerting an influence on

md thereby are helping shape the desti- 
hies of other peoples of the world in a

"We should not paint a blacker picture 
or youth than youth actually faces. We 
should not fill the world of youth with 
nore problems than out of specific cases 
)jmd breed in youth a feeling that closely 
Approaches discontent and thus cause youth 
■ o make demands for more than youth has 
been able to fit itself for." 

"On the contrary, we should hold out

education for all and point out the op- 
portunities that exist for youth to find ex- 
pression in leadership one of the fields on 
ijhe development of which our social and 
economic system must depend." 

"We, of course, recognize that youth 
s presented with a different problem to- 
'lav than that which existed from 60 to 
.00 years ago. At that time the young 
nan of 18 or 20 was, in many respects, 
ar more mature than the young man of 

8 or 20 today. Then, when he wished

people. The teacher has a personal, indi-

programs for teacher training I am almost 
persuaded that teachers are thought of not 
as human beings at all but merely as relay- 
ing mechanisms through which schedules, 
forms and cultures are automatically trans- 
mitted to children. I want to make a plea 
tonight for the teacher as a human being: 
and for the education of the teacher as a 
rational and whole human being. In so 
doing, I am not at all unaware of the

Thoughts of Interest: 

A Note on Political Campaigns 

by Dr. Howard M. Kline, 
Professor in Political Science 

Every four years an estimated one mil- 
lion people are actively engaged in expend- 
ing an estimated fifty million dollars in a 
peculiarly American way for the peculiarly 
American purpose of electing a President. 
Both the methods and the purpose are 
"peculiarly American" because no other 
country selects its chief executive in the 
same way. 

Students of our political behavior have 
calculated that each of the two major 
parties enjoys the regular support of nearly 
40 per cent of the voters and that the 
million people and the fifty million dollars 
are devoted to the single purpose of win- 
ning the support of the remaining 20 per 
cent. Or, to state the same thing in a 
different way, out of every five votes cast, 
two will be cast for the candidate of one 
of the major parties, two will be cast for 
the candidate of the other major party, and 
the campaign will be waged over the fifth 

Party Members 

A cross-section, of each of the major 
parties shows that its dependable support 
(40 per cent) is divided into several 
groups, according to their status in the 
party. There is in each party, of course, 
an inner circle of managers or strategists, 
who plan and direct the campaign. Their 
decisions and tactics are carried out by a 
complete hierarchy of party committee- 
men, ranging from the precinct (or dis- 
trict) leader through the members of the 
national committee. The bulk of the po- 
litical army is, however, the thousands of 
faithful adherents — some active, some dor- 
mant — who march to the polls on election 
day and vote a straight ticket. Most of 
them are vigorous and attentive, others 
need to be encouraged or prodded by 
party workers. Not so numerous or con- 
spicuous but equally dependable arc the 
myriad of special interest groups who have 
some special policy or policies they want 
adopted; their significance is enhanced by 

reason of their willingness to augment the 
parh' war chest. Lastly, there is a some- 
what independent fringe of voters who, 
though outwardly recalcitrant, are usually 
regular on election day. 

Each party, thus armed with a general 
staff of strategists, a host of lesser officers 
of command and thousands of faithful reg- 
ulars, march forth to the Armageddon of 
November's fateful first Tuesday. If the 
general staff of strategists and managers of 
the two parties are equally keen diagnos- 
ticians, the plans of battle will be identical. 
More than that, the principal forces will 
be concentrated at the same points, be- 
cause the main battle will be waged in 
the doubtful areas and doubtful States. 

Some districts within a State — indeed, 
some States- — are counted as "sure" for 
each party in advance. A political party 
will not spend its forces and energies in a 
district or State that it is sure to carry 
come-what-may, nor will it devote much 
attention to a district or State that is sure 
to be carried by the other party. Both 
concentrate on the doubtful territory. 
Party Committees 

The key to understanding American po- 
litical parties and their campaign tactics 
lies in the system of party committees. 
These committees are the continuing or- 
gans of the party which, regardless of vic- 
tory or defeat, carry the party from elec- 
tion to election and are the explanation 
of its long life. Year in and year out, there 
is a permanent hierarchy of committees 
which reach from the national committee 
through congressional, State, county, ward, 
and precinct (or district) committees into 
every election district in the nation. These 
committees are active 365 days in each 
year and not only in the weeks immedi- 
ately preceding election. For campaign 
purposes, scores of special committees are 
created to make special appeals to special 
groups, such as women, veterans, farmers, 
foreign language groups, negroes, etc. In 

addition, other campaign committees 
"spring up", or are planted (often with 
unrevealing names) such as societies of 
patriots, taxpayers, progressives, good 
neighbors, constitution and liberty protec- ' 
tors, etc. Many of these committees are 
purely local but their efforts are carefully 
coordinated with those of the permanent 
party committees so that the whole system 
functions in synchronized integration. 
Campaign Media 
The fundamental task of this huge or- 
ganization is one of salesmanship, to get 
as wide a hearing as possible and to pre- 
sent their wares as advantageously as pos- 
sible. To this end, all the known sales 
media are employed. At its quadrennial 
convention each party prepares and pre- 
sents a platform which, while conforming 
to a fairly standard pattern, is usually suf- 
ficiently comprehensive and ambiguous to 
admit of varied interpretations and to 
"mean all things to all persons". The can- 
didates themselves are the most conspicu- 
ous interpreters and throughout late Sep- 
tember and October they speak frequently 
and at length. Senators, Representatives, 
Cabinet members, and numerous local po- 
litical figures are pressed into service; they 
speak less often, under less auspicious cir- 
cumstances, but in more pointed and vig- 
orous terms. For many years the major 
party candidates travelled over a large area 
to make personal appearances (especially 
the doubtful areas) but the radio and 
movie have partially replaced this "swing 
around the circuit"; the voter may now 
easily hear his President in the front room 
and see him in the local movie-house. 
Newspaper columns are filled with cam- 
paign manoeuvres and the editorial pages 
of many papers are frankly partisan, in 
some instances reprinting verbatim the 
publicity releases from the appropriate na- 
tional committee. Billboards, pamphlets, 
placards, magazines, buttons, stickers, 
streamers — all demand attention and old- 
time pageantry is recaptured with rallies, 
barbecues, picnics, clam bakes, torchlight 
parades, sound trucks, etc. Our modern 
devices are more mechanical and permit 
a wider coverage but the appeals and show- 
manship of the last century are still funda- 
mentally unchanged.

the individual as the matrix of professional 
training. I am quite aware that there are 
man>' persons — perhaps there are some 
right liere — who think that the supply 
of human talent in tliis world is so small 
that we cannot expect very many talented 
— even reasonably talented — individuals 
'among teachers; and that therefore it is 
not worthwhile to try to develop the per- 
sonality of teachers but is worthwhile only 
to train them to execute programs. That 
the supply of talent or superior intelli- 
gence is fairly meager, is not a new dis- 
covery. It is an old fact. It does not, how- 
ever, justify shifting the emphasis in the 
'preparation of teachers from personal de- 
velopment to program execution, in pre- 
paring teachers for the instruction and lead- 
ership of children. And especially in pre- 
Daring them to instruct and lead children 
Aath respect to wholesome living, they 
nust be guaranteed experience out of 
yhich may come understanding and ap- 
ireciation of wholesome living." 

These two ideas — one of the essential 
Mature of the educational process and the 
ither, the primary importance of educating 
persons for teaching, rather than of train- 
ing agents to execute programs, have been

campaign. The principal tactic becomes 
one of offense, and tin focus "t attention 

is usually upon the opponent's weaknesses. 

I here is. hence, a disadvantage to the can 
didate who seeks re-election because oi Ins 

record which must be at once explained 
and justified. The opposing candidate will 
remain respectable and keep Ins 
upon a relatively high plane while his 
satellites, with or without authorization, 
deliver the hotly blows at or near the belt. 

There is always a more or less concerted 
effort by a candidate to identify himself 
and his party with virtues which have a 
nearly universal appeal; prosperity, liberty, 
justice, economy, law enforcement are 
among these. Personal characteristics of 
sportsmanship, sophistication, family lov- 
ing, church-going, hard-working, arc culti- 
vated with the same deliberate caution as 
their counterparts are avoided. Particularly 
unsavory are identifications with "isms", 
agitator, dictator, war-monger, tool of spe- 
cial interests, corruptionists. etc. In the 
closing weeks of the campaign, however. 
when the battle is hottest and the strug- 
gle most desperate, name-calling is a fa- 
vorite reliance and each candidate will find 
himself knee-deep in the pristine virtues 
attributed to him by his political friends 
and at the same time reeking with the vices 
heaped upon him by his political enemies. 

Sloganeers, song-writers, cartoonists, 
journalists, masters of invective and in- 
nuendo — craftsmen of all kinds are called 
upon and each does his part. As a people 
we love and enjoy a show and our prcsi 
dential campaigns are among the finest 
produced anywhere. Political leaders have 
for generations "pointed with pride and 
viewed with alarm"; vet there is a general 
agreement that the overwhelming major 
ity of the voters are totally unaffected by 
the campaign, having previously concluded 
that they will continue to support "their" 
party. At best, therefore, political cam 
paigns can only influence the doubtful 
vote, that is, approximately one vote in 
five. Yet, the political campaign is a ti 
tank contest and every American keenly 
anticipates the presidential campaign.

40 Gridmen Are Asked 
To Report Labor Day 

Letters have been sent out to 40 Mary- 
land gridmen to report on Labor Day, Sep- 
tember 2. to Coaches Jack Faber, Al 
Heagy and Al Woods and it is expected 
that the entire number will answer the 

Fourteen of tbose called are letter men 
from last year, 10 others were on the var- 
sity squad last Fall, and 16 are rookies 
from the 1939 freshman outfit that won 
two games, lost two and tied one. 

Only three of the 14 letter men slated 
to return were regulars last Fall, although 
several others were near-regulars. 

Tackles Offer Task 

Mankind's biggest task appears to be 
to fill the shoes of Ralph Albarano, ace 
tackle; Bob Brown, another good tackle, 
who was retarded by injuries all last sea- 
son; George Lawrence, guard, and John 
Boyda, Pershing Mondorff and Frank Skot- 
nicki, backs. Albarano, Lawrence and Boy- 
da were the greatest losses. 

In fact, it will be difficult to find a 
heavy-duty back as efficient as Boyda was 
last year. 

Maryland's squad also is comparatively 
light and lacks the experience of rival out- 
fits. There are only half a dozen on the 
squad who reach 190 and only two go to 

List Of Letter Men 

Letter men to return are: 

Dick Shaffer, Frank Dwyer and Leo 
Mueller, ends, who saw more than 50 per 
cent action; Bill Krouse and Ralph Burlin, 
who were reserve tackles; George Gienger, 
regular, and John Morton, guards; Bob 
Smith, regular, and Jim Wharton, centers, 
both of whom were out of the last two 
games because of injuries; Joe Murphy, 
Mearle DuVall, Bernie Ulman, Fred Wid- 
ener and Milton Lumsden, backs, with 
only the first named as a regular.

Some Capable Sophs 
Leading sophomore recruits are: 
Reginald Vincent and Luther Conrad, 
tackles; John Sansone and Lohr Dunlap, 
guards; Don Shockey, a husky fullback; 
fohn Gilmore, Louis Chacos, and Harold 
Berry, other fairsized backs, and Joe Hoop- 
2ngardner, a scat back. These and some 
Dthers should help considerably. 

Maryland will be the underdog in seven 
Df its nine games. It has the edge, of 
:ourse, on Hampden-Sydney in material, 
lppears to be just about on a par with 
Western Maryland, but does not closely 
natch the squads of the other teams on 
:he schedule. 

Penn Is Tough Foe 

Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia, on Oc- 
:ober 5, is a particularly tough spot, as the 
Red and Blue is picked to be one of the 
Sast's outstanding outfits. 

Maryland purposely has left November 
I open and the Terps doubtless will need 
hat breathing spell. 

The University Serves 
State Organizations 

The old campus is constantly in use 
serving the various interest of the people 
of the State. During the week of June 17 
more than a thousand women of the Home- 
makers Clubs assembled on the campus 
for a week of study and lecture. 

Many subjects for the betterment of all 
conditions in the rural areas were discussed. 
The popularity of the course, under the 
direction of Miss Venia M. Kellar, is shown 
by its growth in a span of not many years 
from a few hundred to more than a thou- 

Later in the year the 4 II Club boys 
spend a week on the campus; Canners' As- 
sociation, the Bridge Inspectors' Associa-

Fellow Alumni: 

A new college year is about to begin. 
Though \vc arc advancing in years, I feel 

sure this season will bring fond memories 
of our college clays. Reports indicate there 
will be 3,000 undergraduate students reg- 
istered at College Park; also 500 post 
graduate and spe- 
cial students. When 
I entered College 
Park in September. 
l ( )]s, there were 
250 in the whole 

student body, so 
you can see there 
certainly has been a 
tremendous growth

seems to be quite a numbei of football 
players, but when one- takes a look at that

The date agreed upon is Saturday, October 
12th, from morning 'til midnight. A pro- 
gram of events has been arranged which 
leases not a dull moment. Register at the 
Ritchie Coliseum, near Stadium. 

Football, naturally, is the big attraction, 
but a variety of entertainment will add 
spice to the program. A collegiate tradi- 
tion which brings into struggling combat 
freshmen and sophomores in their annual 
tug-of war. The event will be conducted 
on the banks of the famous Paint Branch. 
Another Fall sport is the cross country race 
of the harriers, at which time both fresh- 
men and varsity teams will match strides 
and stamina with the representation from 
Virginia. The freshmen start the day's 
events by engaging Dickinson Seminary in 
a gridiron contest. All these events take 
place in the forenoon. 

"M'' Club Meeting 
The annua] meeting of the "XT' Club 
will be held at noontime, preceded by a 
luncheon in the University Dining Hall. 
Dr. A. Kirkland Beslcy, 73, President of 
the Club and General Chairman of Home 
coming, will preside. All other Alumni are 
invited to lunch in the University Cafe- 
teria, located in the University Dining Hall. 

Tydings Trophy 

At 2:30 the shrill whistle and the plunk 
of the booted pigskin will start the annual 
gridiron clash between the Cavaliers of 
Virginia and the Terps of Maryland for 
the coveted Tydings Trophy, presented by 
the Honorable Millard F. Tydings, '10, 
United States Senator from Mankind. 
When the football players take their half- 
time breathing spell student organizations 
will entertain with their original designs in 
a float parade. 

Team Of 1915 
I lonored guests of the day will be those 
boys who wore the gridiron moleskins 25 
years ago. These former gridiron heroes 
will be guests of the Athletic Board at the 
football game and will occupy a special 
box behind the players' bench. Those c\

Thoughts of Interest: 


Dr. John E. Younger 
Chairman ot the Department of Mechanical Engineering 

This school year the University of Mary- 
land will graduate the first class in the 
aeronautical option of the department of 
mechanical engineering. While this is the 
first year that the complete program in 
aeronautics will be given, instruction has 
been given during the last two years, con- 
sistent with the ability of the students, in 
specialized aeronautical subjects. This has 
enabled students from the graduating 
classes of mechanical engineering for the 
last two years to find positions in the aero 
nautical industry. Last year, about 50 per 
cent of the mechanical engineering class 
found positions in aircraft factories. 

The new aeronautical laboratory is rap- 
idly taking shape. At the present time the 
wind tunnel is complete, and is now ready 
for the installation of the special wind tun 
n el instruments and other equipment. It 
is expected that this equipment will be 
completely installed in time for the in- 
struction of the senior aeronautical engi- 
neers this year. While the University will 
have an excellent wind tunnel for student 
instruction, the tunnel is not large enough 
for scientific investigations and for com- 
mercial testing. Modern wind tunnels de- 
signed for research and commercial work 
must be quite large, and require a very 
high wind velocity. Such a tunnel would 
cost several hundred thousand dollars. 

The aeronautical engineering laboratory 
is designed primarily for specialization in 
aircraft design and construction. This 
choice is made because about 95 per cent 
of the engineering personnel of aircraft 
factories are employed in design and con- 
struction of airplanes. 

The equipment which is now being set 
up in the laboratory will be sufficient to 
carry out all tests necessary in the devel- 
opment of an airplane and to construct 
small duralumin and stainless steel air 
planes. A partial list of this machinery is as 
follows: Spot welder, heat treating furnace, 
Strength testing machines, automatic air 

hammers, machines for working the metal 
to the proper shape, and auxiliary equip- 

The University is cooperating with the 
National Government in its defense pro- 
gram in the following manner: 

( 1 ) By participation in the Civil Aero- 
nautics Authority Flight Training Pro- 
gram. The University has graduated one 
hundred students from this flight training 
program to date. The flight instruction for 
the University of Maryland quota of the 
Civil Aeronautics program is given by the 
Brinekcrhoff Hying Service at the College 
Park Airport. 

( 2 ) The University is cooperating with 
the National Advisory Committee for 
Aeronautics in conducting research on sev- 
eral phases of aircraft construction. Funds 
are provided for this research by the Na- 
tional Government. Capable students are 
selected to participate in this research pro- 
gram as a part of their engineering training. 

A new faculty member, an assistant pro 
fessor, was added to the staff of mechanical 
engineering this year to take charge of the 
aeronautical engineering laboratory and as- 
sist in instruction in aeronautical subjects. 

Marriage — Mr. and Mrs. Charles P. 
Wall announce the marriage 'of their 
daughter, Dorothy Schnepfe Wall, '38, to 
Mr. Harold W. Smith, '38, on Saturday, 
August 31, 1940, at Baltimore, Mankind. 

At Home — Mrs. Carolyn Chesser Cop- 
pingcr, '30, announces that she will be at 
home at 3900 Fourteenth Street North- 
west, Washington, D.C., and extends a 
welcome to her friends.

the best, considering the material at hand 
The coaches can do only so much — the 
enthusiasm and interest must be furnished 
by the Alumni. Mankind has a limited 
field from which to draw capable athletes 
in comparison to other large State insti- 
tutions. We, the Alumni, should encour 
age more football training at our various 
State high schools and then use our influ- 
ence to see that the best material gets to 
College Park. 

We all should be interested in "Home- 
coming Day" on October 12th, when Yir 
ginia will meet Maryland. This will mean 
plenty of fireworks and should provide an 
afternoon of interest and excitement. At 
noontime the "M" Club will hold its an- 
nual meeting, as usual. An "Alumni Mix 
er" and supper will be held immediately 
after the football game. One of the high 
lights of this occasion will be the return of 
the football team of twenty five years ago. 


On October 5th, Maryland will play the 
University of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia: 
this should be an interesting game. The 
President and Alumni of the University 
of Pennsylvania have invited the President 
and Alumni of the University of Maryland 
to meet with them jointly at a luncheon 
to be held in the west lounge of Houston 
Hall, 3417 Spruce Street, Philadelphia, 
from 11:30 to 1:45. The charge will be 
$1.00 per person. This will be a splendid 
opportunity for the President and Alumni 
of these great Universities to get together 
and exchange ideas of mutual interest. I 
sincerely hope that every graduate of Mary- 
land located within convenient distance 
from Philadelphia will make a special effort 
to be present for this luncheon. 

I will be looking forward with great 
pleasure to seeing you both at Philadelphia 
and on "Homecoming Day" at College 
Park. Please make a special effort to be 
present for both of these occasions and 
lend the team a helping hand. The foot 
ball boys will need your help and support. 

Yours very truly,

Football Team Should Be Tough To Conquer This Season 
If Tackles Are Developed And Injury Jinx Relents 

Maryland's football outlook hardly 
could be definitely appraised as it put on 
the finishing touches for the opening game 
with Hampden Sydney at College Park on 
September 28th. 

In fact, Coaches Jack Faber, Al Woods 
and Al Heagy, while they didn't expect to 
just skim over the tilt with Hampden- 
Sydney, were looking ahead to the first big 
test with Penn in Philadelphia on October 
5th and the Homecoming clash with Vir- 
ginia at College Park a week later. 

Mankind scored over the Hampden 
Sydney Tigers in the opener last year, 26-0, 
md as far as could be ascertained in ad- 
vance, they appeared to be about relatively 
of the same strength this season. The 
Tigers, though, had the benefit of a game 
with Washington and Pee as a primer for 
the College Park visit, and this added 
something to their chances. 

Injury Jinx Still Working 

The old injury jinx that has been fol- 
lowing the Terps for several years had be 
gun to get in its work when this was writ 
ten and had put Mearle DuVall, clever 
passer, ball carrier and kicker, and Dick 
Shaffer, leading end, on the shelf for a 
spell. They were counted out of the open- 
ing test but both were expected to be 
ready again in time to figure in the battle 
with Penn. 

Maryland already had lost Jim Wharton, 
clever letter man center, who was ill dur- 
ing the Summer and had not sufficiently 
recovered to start practice. He's in school 
but at the best could not be ready until 
the middle of the campaign and may stay 
out of the game until next Tall. 

The 'Terps, however, arc so well fixed for 
centers that they are making a blocking 
back of Bob Smith, who rated as the reg- 

ular snapper-back for two campaigns. Smith 
underwent an operation on his knee during 
the Winter and the belief that a blocking 
back berth might be easier on him hac 
something to do with shifting his position 
Blazek Back At Center 

Frank Blazek, who starred in the lasl 
two 1939 games at center, after Smith arte 
Wharton had been put out with injuries 
is holding down that job again and appear; 
well backed by George Jarmoska, a junioi 
college graduate, who is eligible for the 
varsity, and John Cordyack. a junior, whe 
was converted from a back to a pivot man 

If the injury jinx releases its grip, find 
ing tackles will be the greatest problem foi 
the coaches, and if solved, doubtless woulc 
assure a team that would give a good ac 
count of itself. Ralph Burlin and Big Bil 
Krouse, letter men. and Luther Conrac 
and Reginald Vincent, sophs, all are ini

Guard Positions Well Supported 

George Giengei and John Morton, let

guard material, and I larold Berry, who was 
a blocking hack last year, is crowding for

rugged, is the backbone of the backfield 
array, which contains other letter men in

Elmer Rigby, out .ill last year with a 
broken hand, and Sophs Don Shockey, 6

Hoopcngardncr also are very much in the

proving every day and he has the speed

Probable Starting Line-Up 

Disregarding injuries, if Maryland had 
o pick a starting team at this moment, it 
lkcly would be as follows: 

L. Mueller and Shaffer, ends; Krouse or 
ppnrad and Burlin. tackles; Gienger and 
Norton, guards; Blazek. center; Murphy. 
DuVall, Shockey and Smith or Lumsden. 

\mong these 13 there are 10 letter men, 
he veteran Blazek and Shockey and Con- 

[d, sophs, being the exceptions. 
Faber, Heagy and Woods comprise an 
, telligcnt trio from every standpoint. 
. h hey and the gridders are working their 
.eads off to get some place, and 100 per 
lent effort never has gone unrepaid. 

i Frank Blazek who. without previous ex 
erience in the position, stepped into the 
(reach at center and starred against V. M. 
I and Syracuse in the Terps' last two 
Simes of 1939, is an honor student in the 
Jollegc of F.nginecring. He came to Mary 
ijnd from Baltimore Poly.

lacrosse is next with 7. 

Mankind's grid warriors will trv to shell 
the enemy from the portside. Ashton (Jar 
reft, a tackle who hoots with his left foot, 
is among the place-kickers, and Elmer 
Rigby, a hack, is a southpaw passer. 

Maryland will play homecoming games 
on successive Saturdays. The Terps stage

taining Virginia October 12th and the fol-

the average being only six letters to a 
name. Hoopengardner has the only jaw 
breaker, doubling the average with one let

Maryland would have a good chance of 
winning the football sprint and mile relay 
championships for backfield men if there 
were such events. With Murphy as the 
ace. the Terps could present a niftv qua]

Moore, '28, Top Pilot 
On American Air Lines 

From Nashville, Tennessee, to New 

York City is the flying route for W. H. 
Moore, '28, a pilot for the American Air 
Lines. Nashville is the second terminal in 
the transcontinental route and Dallas. Tex 
as. the third. Washington is the first. 

.Moore has watched the growth of the 
campus from the air for the past ten years, 
hut this summer was the first time he has 
been on the campus for some time. 

As told by Moore, travel by air across the 
continent now is just an overnight jaunt. 
Passengers board the plane in New York 
at 5:00 P. M. and they arc served dinner 
aboard the plane and berths are made 
down by ten o'clock, which is about the 
tune they are leaving Nashville. Here the 
plane crew changes but the passengers do 
not. The crew reaches the central room by 
a trap door in the top of the plane. Next 
morning passengers are awakened in time 
to have breakfast before landing at Los 
Angeles by 7:40 A. M. This gives business 
men time to do business one day in New- 
York and the next day in Los Angeles. 

The same time for leaving Los Angeles 
is used as leaving New York, but do you 
know an east bound plane usually makes 
better time than a west bound plane, be- 
cause eighty per cent of the time, west 
bound planes have a prevailing head wind? 
Radio Beams 

The usual height at which a plane flies is 
from eight to nine thousand feet, seldom 
over twelve thousand. The east bound 
planes fly at the odd height, keeping to the 
right of the radio beams and the west 
bound planes are flown in the even heights. 
Radio beams guide planes for approximate- 
ly one hundred miles in each direction; 
however, beam stations are usually not 
over one hundred miles apart. 

The planes capacities arc twenty-one 
passengers in day travel and fourteen pass- 
engers for night travel. A plane weighs 
28,000 pounds with a full load and car- 
ries 822 gallons of gas. 

Moore relates an incident in picking up 
last-minute mail; one clay he found a letter 
directed to friends of his who lived near 
his home at Hovel. Maryland, in Mont- 
gomery County. He could have delivered 
the letter that clay as his route carried him 

Army Announcements 

Air Corps 

The Air Corps of the Third Corps Area 
contemplates in the near future to order 
certain college graduates to study meteor- 
ology at Massachusetts Institute of Tech- 
nology, California Institute of Technology 
and New York University on a Flying Ca- 
det status. 

The requirements for meteorology Fly- 
ing Cadets are that the applicant be un-

OCTOBER, 1940 

OT Europe, not even 
those outlying naval bases that 
protect our shores — America's 
first line of defense is American 
industry. It is to industry that 
the nation looks today for the 
armaments to protect America's 
high living standards, to de- 
fend the American way of life. 

In the last two generations 
. American industry has built a 
great nation. Its workmen, scien- 
tists, and engineers have helped 
produce and put to work more 
than one-third of the world's 
electric power and one-half of 

its mechanical energy. They have given us electric lights 
in 24 million American homes and electric refrigerators 
in 13 million — conveniences which represent the highest 
standard of living and the greatest industrial achieve- 
ment in the world. And the manpower, the inventive 
and manufacturing genius, the experience, the daring 
to tackle difficult tasks assets which have helped to 
produce this high standard of living — are among Amer- 
ica's strongest resources today. 

Not a cannon, but the 130,000-pound shaft for a great electric generator 

being built in the General Electric shops in Schenectady. When completed, 

the generator will deliver 75,000 horsepower of electricity. 

Industry today undertakes the task of building, not 
onlv armaments, but, equally important, the machines 
that can be used to manufacture these armaments in 
quantity sufficient for any emergency. And General 
Electric scientists, engineers, and workmen, who for 
more than 60 years have been putting electricity to 
work in America's peacetime pursuits, are today turning 
to the new job -the job of defending the benefits elec- 
tricity has helped to create. 

G-E research and engineering have saved the public from ten to one hundred dollars 
for every dollar they have earned for General Electric

Our Homecoming Day at College Park 
on October 12 was well attended. On be 
half of the Alumni Association I want to 
thank the various Deans for then splendid 
cooperation in calling their Alumni groups 
together for the purpose of assisting in the 
reorganization of our Alumni Association. 
The Deans of most of the colleges were 
successful in having sufficient Alumni pres 
cut to perfect a skeleton organization and

and Virginia was well attended, exciting

Eighteenth Annual Homecoming 

Most Colorful Occasion 

Homecoming at College Park this year 
was a very colorful occasion. The beautiful 
autumn colors were at their height, mak- 
ing a splendid background for the f rater 
nity and sorority house decorations. There 
were many attractive decorations and after 
a close judging inspection first honors 
went to Sigma Phi Sigma, who were also 
showing off their new home. Second hon- 
ors went to Kappa Kappa Gamma. The 
theme of all decorations was "welcome 
Alumni" and many old grads did visit their 
respective homes during the day and Sat- 
urday night. 

Besley Chairman 

The general Homecoming program be- 
gan the night before with a pep rally, 
bonfire, and street dance, led by John 
Rcchord. President of the Student Govern- 
ment Association; Bob Rice, and Mary Ann 
Griffith, the committee in charge. S'atur 
day morning things were in full swing, 
with the freshman footballers opening the 
program by tying Dickinson Seminary, 7-7. 
Then the cross-country team won from 
Virginia. At noon the annual luncheon 
and meeting of the "M" Club was held 
at the University Dining Hall with Dr. A. 
K. Besley, '13, President of the "M" Club, 
presiding. At the meeting election of offi- 
cers for the ensuing year was as follows: 
Mr. James W. Stevens, '17, football and 
track. President; Mr. M. B. "Mike" Ste- 
vens, '29, football, basket ball and base- 
ball, Vice-President. 

In the afternoon a really good football 
game took place with the only exception 
that the Tcrps were on the short end of 
the score, Virginia winning, 19-7. Actually 
on several occasions Maryland might have- 
scored, making it a closer game if not win 
ning for the Tcrps. 

Alumni Mixer 

Following the game the campus and en- 
virons became a beehive. The Alumni 
mixer and buffet supper attracted many 
old grads to the Women's Field House, 
and also all fraternity and sororities held 
open house to their returning grads and a 
generally make merry atmosphere predom- 
inated. At 9 the Alumni Homecoming 
Dance with a battle of music between two

out went the lights at midnight, signing 
off for the Eighteenth Annual Homecom-

Thoughts of Interest: 

How A President Is Elected 

by Dr. Hugh A. Bonk 

Professor in Political Science 

On August 4. 1940. the first Gallup 
poll in the current presidential nice an- 
nounced that at that time Wendell Will- 
kic would have been elected President 
over Franklin D. Roosevelt in the Elec- 
toral College by a score of 304 to 227 for 
President Roosevelt. It pointed out that 
this was a margin of thirty-eight electoral 
votes more than the necessary 266 to elect. 
Simultaneously it was stated that Presi- 
dent Roosevelt had 51 per cent, of the 
popular votes to 49 per cent, for Mr. 

At once this threw thousands of readers 
into a state of confusion and focused at- 
tention on the Electoral College system of 
choosing a President; a system whose de- 
velopment has made it unique in world 
history. For example, students ask me — 
Does this mean, that a man can become 
President of the United States without re- 
ceiving at least a vote of approval from 50 
or more per cent, of the voters? Would 
not Mr. Willkie, if elected under these 
circumstances, be legally and morally ob- 
ligated to resign in favor of the President 
in order to preserve the principle of "ma- 
jority rule"? The answer to the first in- 
quiry is in the affirmative and to the sec- 
ond in the negative. 

This amazing Electoral College method 
has been fraught with complexity and con- 
fusion since 1800 and its ramifications to 
the political theorists arc many. To the 
layman, however, mention of a few facts 
as to its origin and development as well as 
its characteristics may help to clarify the 
atmosphere surrounding this device. 
Origin And Development 

The method of electing a President was 
one of the most difficult questions facing 
the makers of the Constitution in 1787. 
Direct election by the people was consid 
crcd and rejected; ostensibly because of 
scattered population which in turn made 
it difficult for the rank and file to inform 
themselves of the qualifications of the 

candidates and therefore the easy prey of 
demagogues. Election of the President by 
the Congress was also considered inadvis- 
able because it would violate the doctrine 
of separation of powers and would fail to 
give the executive a desired independence. 
Alexander Hamilton proposed the medium 
of an "electoral college" which seemed at 
the moment a happy solution. Briefly, the 
plan called for each state to have as many 
electors as it had national senators and 
representatives. For example, originally and 
at present Maryland has six representatives 
and two senators which gives her a total 
of 8 electors. The state legislature was 
empowered to designate the method of 
choosing these electors. As late as the Civil 
War some legislatures insisted on naming 
the electors although most of them aban- 
doned this practice long before this time 
in favor of direct election by the people. 

These electors were to weigh, conscien- 
ciously, the qualifications of persons avail- 
able for the Presidency and cast their bal- 
lots accordingly. However, this plan 
worked as intended for only two or three 
elections. By 1800 the electors were put 
before the voters by the political parties 
and it was known in advance the candidate 
for whom they would vote. This has con- 
tinued for 140 years now and today there 
arc only a handful of states wherein the 
names of the electors even appear on the 
ballot. In Maryland the names of the elec- 
tors will be omitted from the ballot for 
the first time this November. 

On next November 5 the voter will go 
to the polls and check the names of one of 
the presidential nominees. Theoretically 
he will be voting for eight men (electors) 
who will go to Annapolis the first Monday 
after the second Wednesday in December 
(December 16) and cast their ballots for 
the presidential and vice presidential nom- 
inees as pledged in advance of the elec- 
tion, provided of course that this presi- 
dential nominee received the largest num- 

ber of popular votes in the state. If the 
voter cast his ballot for a nominee who , 
failed to receive the most popular votes in 
the state then his vote for all practical 
electoral purposes is wasted because all of 
the electoral votes of a state are cast for 
the successful candidate rather than on a 
pro rata basis. 

To follow the story, the electors of each 
state will mail their ballots to the presi- 
dent of the United States Senate. On Jan 
uary 6, 1941, the members of both houses 
of the Congress will gather and the elec 
toral ballots will be opened and tallied to 
ascertain who received a majority. Then 
the winners will be formally announced to 
the country which had known this result 
for two months. This is because the elec 
tors in each state are honor bound to cast 
a unanimous ballot for the candidate who 
received a plurality or majority of the 
state's popular vote. The results of the 
popular vote, of course, are usually known 
a few hours after the closing of the polls, 
therefore the outcome of the election is 
likewise known in advance of the meeting 
of the electors. 

"Minority" Presidents 

The fact that the entire electoral vote 
of a state falls to the candidate who polls 
a mere plurality of the popular vote not 
only leads the party managers to concen- 
trate their efforts upon populous, doubtful 
states, but also accounts for the election of 
a "minority president." The latter is one 
who received fewer than half of the total 
popular vote cast but by obtaining popular 
pluralities in a sufficient number of states 
was elected. 

Strictly speaking, the United States has 
had many minority Presidents as evidenced 
by the fact that in only 10 out of the last 
16 elections has the successful candidate 
received a popular as well as electoral ma- 
jority. The most sensational illustration of 
this was in elections of 1876 and 1888. 
In the former, Hayes was elected over Til- 
den although the unsuccessful nominee 
received nearly 300,000 more votes or 50.9 
per cent, to 48.9 per cent, for Hayes. 
Cleveland received more than 100,000 
votes in 1888 than did his opponent, Har- 
rison, yet received only 42 per cent, of 
the electoral vote. The above cases are 
conspicuous because minor parties captured 
such a small percentage of the popular

Maryland's Next Battle 
Is With Georgetown 

Maryland's football team now is looking 
to its game with Georgetown at College 
Park on November 9, and the Terps had 
two weeks to prep for the powerful Hoyas 
after battling Western Mankind in the 
Baltimore Stadium on Friday night, Oc- 
tober 25. 

The Terps, though, do not rate to have 
a victory chance in the seventh modern 
meeting with the Hoyas, so that George- 
town appeals certain to take a 4-3 lead in 
the series. 

Each has won three games, the 20-0 
count by which the Hoyas took the hon- 
ors last Fall being the widest margin 
cither has registered. 

Record Of Past Tilts 

Here arc the scores of the modem 

1934— U. of M.. 6; Georgetown, 0. 
1935— U. of M., 12; Georgetown, 6. 
1936 — U. of M, 6; Georgetown, 7 
1937— U. of M., 12; Georgetown, 2 
1938— U. of M., 7; Georgetown, 14 
1939— U. of M., 0; Georgetown, 20 

Georgetown, then one of the powers in 
football, used to beat the Terps regularly 
in a breather when the College Park in- 
stitution was the Maryland Aggies. Here 
are the scores of those early tilts: 
1899— Georgetown, 17; M. A. C, 
1902— Georgetown, 27; M. A. C, 
1903— Georgetown, 28; M. A. C, 
1904— Georgetown, 22; M. A. C, 
1906— Georgetown, 28; M. A. C, 
1907— Georgetown, 10; M. A. C, 0. 
Simply Are Overmatched 

The Terps, who had not won a game 
going into the Western Maryland clash, 
had played fine football in bowing to 
Virginia and Florida in the two preceding 

In fact, Maryland outgained Virginia in 
bowing by a count of 19 to 6. and lost to 
Florida by only 19 to after playing the 
'Gators to nc score in the first half of the 
battle. Then the breaks, the heat and some

Joe Murphy 

Bob Smmii 

They are bulwarks of the Terp team, Murphy's kicking and Smith's 

defensive work being shining lights. They also have acted as captain in 

alternate games this season 

bad forward pass defensive play enabled 
Florida to delight a Homecoming crowd 
at Gainesville. 

Maryland's game with Virginia at Col- 
lege Park on October 12 also was the 
Terps' Homecoming affair and the old 
grads were well pleased with the way the 
team performed against a Cavalier outfit 
that possessed much greater assets. 

Florida also had a squad that greatly 
overmatched Maryland in manpower. 
Frosh Not Big-Time 

Maryland has a fair freshman squad, one 
that possibly may be slightly better than 
normal, but it is not a picked aggrega- 
tion as some folks were prone to say was 
the case. 

In fact, "home" talent, as usual, pre 
dominates, with State boys being the real 
stars. Leaders on the team arc Jack Wright, 
back; Louis Hcsson, end, and Tony Nardo, 
guard, all from Baltimore City College; 
Tommy Mont, a back, from Alleghany 
High of Cumberland; Bill Taylor from 
McDonogh, who was an end there and 
now is playing center, and Dick Alex- 
ander, another wingman, who came from 

West Nottingham Academy of Colora, 

George Barnes and Evans, the latter 
who never played high school football, are 
two District of Columbia youths who join 
with Wright and Mont to complete Man- 
land's backfield. 

Austin Frey, a tackle from York, Pal 
is the only other standout on the squad, 
and he remained out of school for a year 
before coming to Maryland. This is plenty 
of proof that his services were not sought 
by anyone as a gridder. 

Tall Hagerstown Lad 

Another boy who may develop is Ken 
net Daniels, a six-foot five-inch, 180- 
pound lineman from Hagerstown. He 
played tackle for Eddie Sender's high 
school eleven but has been running at 
end for the Terps. 

So those who have been saving that 
Maryland got a big-time freshman squad 
as a prelude to hiring a big-time coach 
had better quit dreaming. 

Roy Mackcrt, head of the Phys. Ed 
department, is in charge of the Frosh, and 
is being aided bv Coleman Headley and 


Maryland Alumni Weu's 

Mike Sargent, who completed their grid 
eareers on the l l )3S team. Headley now is 
a farm owner near Laurel. Md. 

The Frosh, however, did well in then 
opening game by holding a heavier and 
more experienced Dickinson Seminary (a 
junior college I to a " 7 store. Wright. 
Mont, Alexander and Frej starred in tins

of the two majoi parties was elected Oul

were the in si term elections of Lincoln 
and Wilson who received 39.9 pei cenl 
and 41.8 per cent, of the populai vote re 
spectively but at the same tunc received 
electoral majorities of 59.4 pei cent, and 
81.9 per cent. A few elections mav be 
chosen at random to indicate the remark 
able discrepancy between populai and 
electoral vote. 

Electoral Popular

IS 36 Buchanan 58.8 43.3 

ISM) Garfield 57.9 48.3 

1900 McKinley 65.3 51.6 

1928 Hoover 83.6 5S.9 

1036 Roosevelt 98.4 60.7 

It is interesting to note that in the last 

election Mr. Landon received about 3~ 

per cent, of the popular vote but only 

about 1.5 per cent, of the electoral vote! 

A glance at the electoral majority of a 

given election is extremely unlikely to give 

an accurate reflection of a candidate's pop 

ularity and strength. 

Finally ;t may be added that it is pos- 
sible theoretically for a man to become 
President by receiving the electoral votes 
of twelve states although his opponent 
might carry the other 36 states by tremen 
clous majorities. If one will add together 
the electoral vote of the eleven most pop 
ulous states in the Union the total will 
reach 258 votes. To this may be added the 
votes of a twelfth state, Maryland, and the 
candidate would have a clear majority! 
Suggested Improvements 
In answer to the question raised orig- 
inally, minority Presidents have been elect- 
ed and have never felt legally or morally 
obligated to resign in favor of an oppo 
nent securing a popular majority or plur- 
ality. Today the Electoral College is a 
mere recording machine, obviously out- 
moded, and no longer serving the purpose 
for which it was intended. It is not sur- 
prising that proposals for altering this sys

Second, voting bj states should continui 

but election would take place be di 

vote of the people on a basis of plurality 
in a majority (25) of the states. Obvious 
1\ the large states would object to this. 

Third, Senator \onis of Nebraska has 
sponsored a constitutional amendment 
(which twice narrowly failed to secure the 
necessary two thirds vote in the Senate i 
to provide for the translation of popular 
votes into electoral votes with the Individ 
ual electoral vote awarded to the canch 
date receiving a popular plurality in the 
state. This represents a considerable mi 
provement over the present system, 

Among electoral experts still another 
plan is favored. This consists of following 
the scheme of Senator Xorris except for 
awarding the electoral vote individuallj 
in the state upon the basis of a plurality 
in each Congressional or electoral district. 
Again in these third and fourth plans state- 
interest and party interest present formid 
able obstacles. In all cases a constitutional 
amendment would be necessary which in 
and of itself constitutes an important bar 
rier to reform. 

Perhaps this brief description of the 
election of the Chief Executive of the 
world's largest democracy has raised more 
questions than it has answered. If so. it 
may lead the reader to seek further light 
on the subject and to discuss the prob 
lem with others. Eventually civic interest 
may lead to action. Meanwhile the present 
system will continue to record, and prob 
ably not too badly, the result of the "great 
est show on earth." an American prcsidcn

Dr. Sherman, '93, Honored 
By Economic Association 

Dr. Henry Clapp Sherman, '93, Pro 
fessor of Chemistry at Columbia Univer- 
sity and internationally known for his re- 
search in nutrition, received the Borden 
Award for outstanding research from the 
American Home Economics Association in 
a convention this summer. 

Nominated by the association for the 
honor. Dr. Sherman received a gold medal 
and $1,000 from W. A. Wcntworth of 
the Borden Company. New York. 

"No one has added more to our knowl- 
edge of milk as a food and its place in 
the diet," stated Helen Judy Bond, Presi- 
dent of the Association, in announcing 
the award. "Dr. Sherman has demonstrat- 
ed in many different ways the wisdom of 
spending one-fifth or more of the food 
money on milk. 

"The important practical results of his 
investigations are our present dietary 

Cited as outstanding contributions ot 
Dr. Sherman are the following: 

His proof that the equivalent of a quart 
of milk a day in the diet produces animals 
superior in all respect to those receiving 
the equivalent of a pint. 

His showing that this good effect is due 
not only to the calcium of milk but also 
to its vitamin A content. 

His demonstration of the superior avail- 
ability of calcium in milk to that in veg- 
etables for retention by children. 

His showing that with increased intake 
of milk up to one quart daily the reten- 
tion of calcium also increases. 
Played Football 

Dr. Sherman, a native of Ashgrovc, Va., 
received his graduate degrees at Columbia 
University. During his college days he was 
a member of the first football team of the

Medical Alumnus 
Honored For Services 

The Addison Community Hospital, 
built largely by volunteer labor and at a 
cost of $15,000, was dedicated recently 
as a monument to Dr. Bowers H. Growt, 
former Baltimore gynecologist, who came 
here twenty years ago to become the 
"country doctor." 

The ceremonies marked an achievement 
in the lives of the 462 residents of this 
rural community in Lenawee County in 
southern Michigan toward which they have 
been striving for twenty years. 

They've had a hospital of sorts since 
Dr. Growt first came to town — a hos- 
pital believed to be the first of its kind in 
rural Michigan ■ — ■ originally located in a 
rented store building and then in a brick 

Dr. Growt, now 49, served as an officer 
in the United States Medical Corps over- 
seas in the World War, when he was 
fresh out of Baltimore City College and 
the University of Maryland, from which 
he was graduated in 1916. He was gyne- 
cologist in the Maryland General Hospital 
when, in 1920, he decided to risk going it 
alone in a medical practice at Addison. 

He came to Michigan expecting to es- 
tablish a practice in a populous city. Find- 
ing Addison a small rural community with 
no hospital nearby and few natural ad- 
vantages for a city-trained physician would 
have been disheartening to any doctor, 
but not for Dr. Growt. He started in to 
make the best of what he had. 

He established himself so securely that 
a year later he returned to Baltimore, mar- 
ried his former surgical assistant at Mary- 
land General, and brought her out to 
Michigan to assist in his practice. 

Addison folk responded in kind. Their 
loyalty to Dr. Growt was manifest in 
community support of his hospital project 
when it was little more than a twobed in- 
firmary adjunct to his office. In trying to 
establish an adequate health center, the 
doctor was helped not by Government 
aid or large philanthropy but by his farm 
neighbors and one-time patients. 

They staged benefit shows, dances, 
church suppers and rummage sales to help 
swell the building fund. Those who 
couldn't give money contributed their 

Alumnae Attend 
Dietetic Convention 

Several Alumnae of the College of Home 
Economics attended the national conven 
tion of the American Dietetic Association, 
held in New York the week of October 
20. Miss Marie Mourt, Dean of the Col- 
lege of Home Economics, was also pres- 
ent and had a chance for a short chat with 


the Alumnae. 

Those who were known to be there 
were Mrs. Jesse Muncastar Richardson, 
'27, now doing dietetic work for a hos- 
pital in Pennsylvania; Miss Ann Harrison, 
'30, now Service Representative of Insti- 
tute Foods for General Foods — she travels 
all over the South; Miss Dorothea Frese 
man, '30, now a radio commentator for N. 
W. Ayre and Sons, Inc.; Miss Ann Matth 
ews, '29, in the Extension Department for 
Cornell University; Mrs. Eloise Sargeant 
Milner, '32, Department of Institutional 
Management of the University of North 
Carolina, in charge of cafeterias; Sister 
Man- Ann, '40, dietetician of Mothers' 
House of Maryknowle Sisters of Ossining, 
New York, and Miss Geraldine Parry, '31, 
doing hospitalization work in New Jersey. 

With The F. B. I. 

Among the members of the Federal Bu- 
reau of Investigation we find Dick Nelson, 
'33, former Terp grid star, now an agent 
in Grand Rapids, Michigan; Thomas 
Webb, '32, a former grid luminary for 
the Terps, is in Pittsburgh, and Al Water. 
'37, a staunch Old Line basketer and

time and labor. One of the young mer 
who laid bricks hour after hour in the hot 
sun this summer without accepting a cent 
of pay was a boy whose birth Dr. Growl 
had assisted when he first came into the 

When neighbors learned the farmhouse 
hospital quarters were taking some of the 
doctor's personal funds to operate, the 
township boards of four adjacent town 
ships voted an appropriation to help meel 
the burden. They later named a commu 
nity hospital board to take this load ofl 
the doctor's shoulders entirely.

From the Average Md. Alumnus — 
The following was an anonymous note 
received from an Alumnus in a postage 
paid return envelope: "From the Average 
Alumnus — Get a respectable football 
team and you'll stir up Alumni interest. 
I might add that a big time coach will 
help, so will a couple of football players." 
'Tis correct, but will the fellow Alumnus 
do his part in contributing to a scholar- 
ship fund for players?

Thoughts of Interest: 

Methods for Selection 

bv Rockr M. Bellows 

The amazing thing about differences be- 
tween people is not that differences exist, 
but that they are found in almost unbe- 
lievable amounts. The methods of applied 
psychology are based upon this very fact 
cf large differences between people. Re- 
finements in methods of industrial per- 
sonnel selection, selection of trainees and 
conscripts, and vocational orientation of 
youth all depend on techniques for de- 
tecting these differences. It will be inter- 
esting to give examples of traits in which 
people differ a great deal, and to cite uses by the applied psychologist of this 
variation between individuals. 

A trait that is very important in most 
school and many occupational situations is 
vocabulary. People differ vastly in the num- 
ber of words they are able to use. A recent 
nation-wide survey of vocabulary revealed 
that the top one per cent of third grade 
school children know the meaning of 5 
times as many words as the children in 
the lowest one per cent. In high school, 
the best one of a typical hundred seniors 
knew three times as many words as the 
lowest one. And vocabulary scores of some 
of the pupils (top one per cent) of the 
third grade were higher than the poorest 
of the high school seniors! 

A clever test has been devised and 
standardized for measuring reading speed. 
Use of this test in many colleges has 
shown that college students differ in spite 
of the fact that they are supposed to be 
pretty much the same. They differ so much 
that the slowest student in a typical group 
of one hundred sophomores takes the same 
length of time to read three or four stan- 
dard paragraphs as the fastest one takes to 
read 35 — the best is ten times faster 
than the slowest! 

Workers on jobs have been found to 
differ more in job proficiency than most 
employers suspect. In evaluating tests for 
use in selection of clerical workers the 

writer found it necessary first to obtain 
production records showing how much 
each worker produced for his employer, 
then give the tests and get test scores, and 
then evaluate the tests by comparing job 
performance with test performance. Vari- 
ations in job performance, from poorest to 
best employe, were much larger than one 
would expect. The best worker was pro- 
ducing nine times more work units than 
the poorest. Results of this kind are not 

Air Pilots 

One phase of the work of the applied 
psychologist is the detection of differences, 
because this enables better selection of the 
most suitable candidates for training and 
for jobs. Several studies of research and 
application of techniques for selection are 
under way in the Department of Psychol- 
ogy. Included in this work are investiga- 
tions for developing methods of selecting 
and training air pilots, and methods for 
classification of conscripts. 

Another aspect of the work on individ- 
ual differences is the testing and counsel- 
ing clinic, designed for educational and 
occupational orientation of University stu- 


Air Pilots — A program for research on 
selection and training of air pilots, com- 
prising some 25 university research centers, 
has been inaugurated and sponsored by 
the National Research Council. The na- 
tional program is conducted under the 
direction of Dr. John G. Jenkins, Chairman 
of the Department of Psychology. 

Two studies are in progress at College 
Park. One consists of working out accurate 
methods for designating degrees of profi- 
ciency in learning to fly, so that it may be 
feasible to select the more proficient pilots 
for advanced training, and also to select, 
by measuring differences which are found 
to be important in flying, those applicants 
who will most probably make expert pilots 

after training. Another investigation deals 
with the relation of body tension to fly 
ing proficiency. 

Conscripts — The War Department is 
interested in matching conscripts with 
military jobs. To do this it is necessary to 
take into account the different require 
ments of the many military occupations, 
and to detect differences in recruits so as 
to find those who meet the various re 
quirements. War Plans Officers have drawn 
upon the Psychology Department for con 
sulfation and facilities pertaining to in 
terviewing and trade testing methods 
which will aid in more accurate classifica 
tion of recruits in military training centers. 

Occupational Orientation — The Test 
ing Clinic, which is now in its third year 
of operation, is designed primarily to aid 
University students to choose fields of 
training and occupational goals which are 
in line with their outstanding character 
istics. This student personnel service con- 
sists of interviewing, testing, record keep 
ing, and interpreting the resulting infor- 
mation to the student so that he may 
make educational and vocational choices 
which are matched with his measured 
achievements, aptitudes and interests. An 
electric test-scoring machine, by which 
three to four hundred tests may be scored 
in an hour, is employed. Interest of high 
school principals and counselors in the fa 
cilities of the Testing Clinic, as an aid to 
counseling their students, resulted in a 
conference held on the campus in October

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

By W. H. ("Bill") HOTTEL: 


Maryland In Brilliant 
Finish To Grid Season 

Maryland's football team, although it 
finished the season with a record of two 
wins, a tie and six defeats, brought the 
campaign to a sensational close in a 7-7 
deadlock with Washington and Lee at 
College Park on November 30. 

The Terps should have won the game, 
but the "breaks" all went against them 
and with only four minutes to go they 
found themselves on their own 1-yard line 
and trailing, 0-7. 

Then they staged what probably was the 
most remarkable feat of the nation's foot- 
ball season by marching 99 yards on eight 
plays to score and kick the extra point to 
save the day. 

It was the type of stuff the squad had 
shown all season after a disappointing 
start and in meeting foes that, with two 
exceptions, greatly outmanned them. 

Rutgers Is Handed Jolt 

While the Terps had won only two 
games going into the Washington and 
Lee contest, over Western Maryland and 
Rutgers, the defeat of the latter by a 14-7 
score was one of the big upsets of the 

However, in all the other games and 
the one with Scarlet, except for the West- 
ern Maryland encounter and the jolt 
handed by Hampden-Sydney in the open- 
er, Maryland was the underdog. 

The Terps showed they were respond- 
ing to the new coaching set-up in gaining 
300 yards to 200 for V. M. I. on Novem- 
ber 16, although losing on the "breaks," 
and demonstrated it decisively in beating 
Rutgers and tieing the Generals. 

They also had to face a heavier and 
more experienced Washington and Lee 
team, one that contained 17 letter men. 

How They Have Fared 

A more complete review will be given 
(Con tin tied on Page 9) 

New Mentor For Boxing; 
Colonel Miller In Service 

Having lost Lieut. - Col. Harvey L. 
(Heinie) Miller, head coach of boxing, to 
the United States defense moves, Mary- 
land was just about to decide upon the 
fistic mentors when this was written. 

While the matter was under consid- 
eration, Mike Lombardo and Ivan Nedo- 
matsky, former Maryland ring greats, were 
handling the boys. It is certain that both 
will remain with the squad and that one 
of them will be put in charge. 

This will be decided in ample time to 
prime for the opening match which is on 
January 1 1 with South Carolina at Col- 
lege Park. 

The outlook is for a good team. 

Other matches are: 

January 18 — Coast Guard Academy, New 
London, Conn. 

February 1 — Virginia at Charlottesville 
(Varsity and Frosh) 

February 8 — Catholic University 

February 12 — Western Maryland, Westmin- 

February 15 — North Carolina 

February 21 and 22 — 

Southern Conference tourney. 

Duke Is Only Newcomer 
To 1941 Grid Card 

Maryland's 1941 football schedule, with 
the exception that Virginia will not be 
met and Duke will be on the list in place 
of the Cavaliers, follows the same lines 
as for the 1940 campaign. 

Virginia and Maryland merely were un- 
able to find a mutually agreeable date and 
the Cavaliers will be back on the 194Z 

It will be the first break in the Virginia- 
Maryland series since 1925, which stands 
at eight wins for the Terps, seven for the 
Cavaliers and two ties. 

The 1941 card: 

Sept. 27 — Hampden-Sydney 

Oct. 3 — Western Maryland, Baltimore Sta- 
dium (night) 

Oct. 11 — Duke, Baltimore Stadium 

Oct. 18— Florida 

Oct. 25— Penn. Philadelphia 

Nov. 1 — Rutgers, New Brunswick 

Nov. 8 — Georgetown, Washington 

Nov. 15— V. M. I. 

Nov. 22 or 27 — Washington & Lee,

Green Basket Ball Team 
Is Facing Tough Going 

II. Burton Shipley, Maryland, '14, wh| 
has been successfully coaching the Teq 
Varsity basketers for the past seventee; 
seasons, has the toughest job on hi 
hands since he took the helm in the Fj 
of 1923. 

"Ship" has just two letter men Id 
from last season — Arthur Woodward an 
Gene Ochsenreiter — neither of whoi 
was a regular during the 1939-40 can 

Jim Wharton and Dick McHale ai 
the only others who were on the squa 
last season and the other ten who fill oc 
the roster are newcomers. 

"Ship" got a blow when George Di 
Witt, all-Southern Conference for tvi 
years, left school, and Mearle DuVall, th 
other ace of 1939-40, had to be kept ol 
the court to stick to the books and hav 
a bad knee fixed. 

Pershing Mondorff, Bill Rea and Adai 
Bengoechea finished their athletic careei 
last June and Leon Vannais did not ri 
turn. All were letter men. 

Maryland plays three games prior to th 
holidays in an attractive schedule ths 
should provide much entertainment, ri

Baseball — P. C. Prough, '95, a former 
football and baseball star, brought to the 
game the original baseball used by the 
team in 1892 when won from the Navy. 
Prough was the pitcher and must have 
struck out the last man and the generous 
catcher gave him the ball. 

The ball will now rest among those 
cherished relics symbolizing victorious 
early days for the Old Liners.

seldom misses a Homecoming or Alumni

people of our State. 
\s the services of 
the University in-

our State will come 
to its rescue and re-

Alumni And Faculty Are University 
Salesmen, Says Mr. White 

I xcerpts from ,i talk by the Honorable 
John S. White, State Delegate of Prince 
George's County and Chairman of the 
Ways and Means Committee, given at a 
dinner by the Maryland Chapter of the 
American Association of University Pro- 

The University of Maryland and its 
place m the State of Maryland was the 
general trend of his talk. 

"It is my feeling, as a member of the 
General Assembly of Maryland, and partic- 
ularly from observations made in my ca- 
pacity of Chairman of the Ways and Means 
Committee of the House of Delegates, 
that the University of Maryland occupies 
a rather unique position from the stand- 
point of the appropriate consideration to 
which it is entitled from the law-makers 
of our State, as well as the people of the 
State as a whole. 

Unfinished Business 

"I always feel at each session of the 
General Assembly, that the business of the 
University of Man land is very definitely 
'Unfinished Business.' for the very ob- 
vious reason that the affairs of this great 
institution arc in constant need of the most 
careful attention of the Legislature, par- 
ticularly the fiscal affairs of the University, 
and I say this for the particular reason 
that the University is constantly growing 
and moving forward. It is alive and it is 
most energetic in its broad field of en- 
deavors, incidental to the training of the 
youth of our State, as well as rendering 
almost unlimited services to the people in 
even- section of the State. The University 
has a most vital place in the affairs of the 
State of Maryland and in my humble judg- 
ment, the strength and stability and stand- 
ing of every State in this Union is more or 
less measured by the attention which each 
State gives in the way of financial assist- 
ance to its State institutions of learning 
and therefore, I always, at every new session 
of the Legislature, approach the fiscal af- 
fairs of the University of Maryland with 
the thought that the business is never fin- 
ished, but rather that we must constantly 
give our best thoughts and endeavors to 

working out the most flexible and liberal 
appropriations for the University, con- 
sistent with our budgetary limits, and other 
governmental activities. 

Going Concern 

"1 might add that in approaching the 
matter of appropriations for the University 
of Maryland, I have the most profound 
respect and admiration for the wonderful 
work which has been carried on at this 
great institution, and when I take into 
consideration the tremendous growth in 
the physical activities of the University. 
I am deeply impressed with the fact that 
the University of Maryland is a 'Going 
Concern.' moving at a steady, progressive 
pace and spreading its influence to the 
far corners of our State to the benefit of 
hundreds of thousands of our people in all 
walks of life, and offering the services of 
skilled and trained workers to thousands 
of our people who show the slightest dis- 
position toward seeking the cooperation 
and assistance of the authorities at the 
University, and in fact, I might say that 
the more the people make use of the fa- 
cilities of the University, the stronger 
and more important the University be- 
comes in the public life and the affairs of 
the State of Maryland. 

Good Risk 

"In view of the two aforegoing obser- 
vations, it naturally follows that I feel that 
the University of Maryland is most defi- 
nitely a 'Good Risk,' and for that reason, 
I have never had the slightest doubt but 
that even- dollar which has been appro- 
priated for the maintenance, operation and 
expansion of the extensive facilities of this 
great University has been appropriated jus 
tifiably and that we have already received 
a substantial return upon our investment, 
and that the future will increase manifold 
the returns from the investments which 
we have made toward the advancement of 
the activities of the University of Mary- 

Alumni Salesmen 

"In looking at the necessity for a sympa- 
thetic understanding of the needs of the 
University and for the development of a 
mutual cooperation toward the accom- 

plishment of such objectives as I have in 
mind, I cannot help but state that I feel 
that everyone connected with the Univer- 
sity in an official capacity must at all 
times, consider themselves 'salesmen' and, 
like all good salesmen they must have an 
abiding faith and confidence in the sub- 
ject which they are offering for sale. In 
the first place, the professor, in dealing 
with the student body, must most defi- 
nitely be a good salesman if he hopes to 
achieve the desired results, for after all, 
he must sell himself to the students be- 
fore he can expect to sell his subject-mat- 
ter and furthermore, the professors must 
be constantly on the alert that they reflect 
the very best in the way of example in 
their dealings with everyone with whom 
they may come in contact and, above all. 
every Alumnus and everyone associated 
with the University, from the President 
down to the most unimportant employe, 
must at all times be eternally vigilant in 
impressing upon the general public, par- 
ticularly the people responsible for the 
operation of the State government, that 
they arc completely sold on the University 
and that they therefore solicit the very best 
possible cooperation from all parties con- 
cerned in the general advancement of the 
affairs of the University. In this connec 
tion I would like to pay my tribute to Dr. 
Byrd, President of this great University, fo: 
his wonderful capacity in the field of 'Sales 
manship,' insofar as the University ofj 
Maryland is concerned, and to compliment 
him highly upon the wonderful work : 
which he has accomplished and which he) 
is accomplishing from day to day in the* 
way of serving the University of Maryland! 
and obtaining for it the recognition toj 
which it is justly entitled, both from the 
general public and from the State of Man 
land in the way of appropriations and id 
the development of a State-wide respeel 
as one of the progressive institutions ( 
higher education in this country."

Thoughts of Interest: 

Pan-American Solidarity In Our Time! 

by Donald Marquand Dozer 
Piofcssoi in Department of History 

Every reader of this article is thinking 
and talking occasionally about such ques- 
tions as these: What does Pan American- 
ism really mean? What arc the obstacles in 
the way of its development and what ef- 
forts have been made to remove them? 
Is Pan-American solidarity a myth or a re- 
ality in the present world crisis? 
Obsracles To Solidarity 

The twenty Latin American countries 
south of the Rio Grande have a total pop- 
ulation of approximately 120,000,000. 
which is roughly equivalent to that of the 
United States. Nearly half of their people 
and more than ninety per cent in at least 
one of these nations are illiterate. Not so 
heterogeneous as the population of our 
country, the Latin Americans arc predom- 
inantly of Spanish, Portuguese, and Indian 
origin. They range in culture from the al- 
most naked savages of the upper Amazon 
to intellectual leaders like Alejandro Al- 
varez of Chile, Saavedra Lamas of Argen- 
tina, and Diego Rivera of Mexico, whose 
names and works are well known on three 

The first salient fact about the Latin- 
Americans is that they are almost as cul- 
turally unlike us as are the Japanese or 
Chinese. Their Ibcric-Indian civilization is 
more feminine, more spiritual, more artis- 
tic than our Anglo-American civilization. 
Their mental processes, their living condi- 
tions, their historical heritage, and their 
total experience differ almost completely 
from ours. Moreover, their geographical 
situation and the difficulties of inter-Amcr- 
ican communication have brought these 
nations into closer contact with Europe 
than with us. Rio dc Janeiro, for example, 
is closer to Spain than to New York, and 
southern Argentina is more remote from 
the United Stales than is Ethiopia or 

\ second salient fact is that Latin \inci 
i ins are accustomed to power politics. Out 
of the political feudalism and anarchy into 

which they lapsed after their wars of inde- 
pendence rose dictators like Rosas in the 
Argentine and Porfirio Diaz m Mexico who 
gave their countries a few years of des- 
potic peace. Today dictators of one type 
or another are in control of fourteen of 
these countries. It an aphorism in dictator- 
ridden Guatemala: "If your widow likes 
flowers, make a speech against Ul>ico." 
But these despotisms are tempered by oc- 
casional lip service to democratic proce- 
dures and by sporadic attempts to improve 
the living standards of their people. And 
though their governments rise and fall by 
power politics the masses of the people 
are wholly unfamiliar with totalitarian dic- 
tatorship of the European model. Their 
pattern of dictatorship does not extend to 
regimentation and conquest. 

A third salient fact is that Latin-Amer- 
ica has not achieved political unity. As a 
heritage from their colonial experience, 
when they were remote and geographic- 
ally isolated vassals of Spain, Portugal, and 
France, these countries shows a jealous in- 
dividualism and a passionate pride in their 
national selfhood which will brook no crit- 
icism. Except in a few rare cases their sus- 
picion of each other is exceeded only by 
their suspicion of the United States. 
Removal Of Obstacles 

Pan-Americanism means simply the 
united cooperation of the independent na- 
tions of this hemisphere in mutually ad- 
vantageous undertakings. Ever since the 
Latin-American nations won their inde- 
pendence they have often consulted to- 
gether to ward off interventions from out- 
side and to settle disputes among them- 
selves. For the past fifty years their rep- 
resentatives have been meeting, along with 
representatives of the United States, in 
periodic Pan-American conferences, the 
first of which assembled at Washington in 
1889 and the most recent at Lima in 
1938. All told some or all of the Ameri- 
i in nations have met together in more 

than one hundred international confer- 
ences dealing with such various subjects 
as the codification of international law, 
the status of women, the promotion of the 
sciences, the construction of highways, 
commercial aviation, agriculture, public 
health and sanitation, and the welfare of 
their children. Their cultural disunity and 
mutual suspicions, therefore, have been 
counteracted by their habit of talking over 
their common problems together. 
World War 
The fair beginnings of Pan American 
solidarity which developed during the 
World War of 1914-1918 were blighted 
in the bud by the United States' post-war 
policy of imperialism which subverted 
Latin-American governments, reduced 
these countries to a semi-colonial status, 
and forced them to submit to exploitation 
by "gringo" capitalists. Our "bad neigh- 
bor" policy toward Latin-America was an 
abject failure and raised up a barrier of 
bitter ill-will against the United States 
which is one of the continuing obstacles 
to Pan-American solidarity. Since 1930. 
therefore, it has been replaced by a "good 
neighbor" policy which has unmistakably 
improved our relations with our neighbors 
to the south. Our marines have been with 
drawn from these countries, we have con- 
cluded liberal trade agreements with eleven 
of them, and we have freed all of them 
from our political apron strings. In the 
Pan-American conferences at Montevideo 
in 1933 and at Lima in 1938 our "good 
neighbor" policy produced close coopera- 
tion between the United States and Latin- 
America in many matters vital to this hem- 
Pan-Americanism In The Present War 
Since the beginning of the present war 
Pan-American solidarity has been promoted 
in many significant ways. In accordance 
with agreements which they adopted in 
their conferences at Buenos Aires and 
Lima the American republics have held 
two historic consultative meetings of their 
foreign ministers. In their first meeting at 
Panama in September and October 193^ 
they determined to maintain the genera 
neutrality of the American republics, cre- 
ated an Inter- American Neutrality ConM 
mittcc, and drew a "zone of security" ex- 
tending approximately 300 miles to set 
around the Americas in which they for-

Kappa Deltas' New Home 

(From Diamondbaclc) 

The tradition of Colonial style Greek 
louses was broken this summer when the 
Cappa Deltas built an English Normandie 
buse, complete with a tower and iron 
;rill\vork, on College Avenue, just below 
he Tri-Delt house. 

A curved flagstone walk leads to the 
ntrance, and the door opens into a hex- 
tonal foyer with the sorority seal set in 
bncrete in the middle of the flagstone 
loor. The room is furnished with iron 
hairs and iron tables with glass tops to 
natch the iron work on the outside win 
BWS and the glass brick which forms two 
if the six sides of the room. 

Huge windows which reach from the 
loor to somewhere short of the ceiling, a 
arge wood paneled fireplace, and beams 
cross the ceiling distinguish the living 
oom. The kitchen and butler's pantry are 
he latest thing in built-in units and equip- 
nent. An incinerator system takes care of 
he garbage from the kitchen and the 
^aste paper from upstairs. From the en- 
rance hall, a curved stairway leads to the 
econd floor. Twelve double rooms, four 
if which are arranged in suites of two, on 
he second floor, and two more on the 
ihird floor accommodate thirty coeds. The 
[ouse-mother's suite and a guest room are 
.n the first floor. 
; A tricky back stairway which can be 

losed off the second floor by double doors 
ads to the rec room in the top story, 
'he chapter room, chapter office, and eve- 

ning dress closet arc also on the third floor. 

It is a house of belles, because when you 
ring the front door button, chimes ring 
inside, and a buzzer system summons 
KD's for their callers and for their meals. 
A little room with glass doors that opens 
off the entrance hall is labeled, the "date 
room." A laundry with built-in ironing 
boards and sleeve boards is conveniently 
located on the second floor. 

On the side of the house is a flagstone 
terrace with an outside fireplace. Large 
trees, which were preserved when the 
house was built, give an air of dignity and 
permanency that such a structure requires.

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

By W. H. ("Bill") HOTTEL: 

Boxing Squad Is Short 
Of Size, Quantity 

Maryland's varsity boxing squad is 
"short" two ways for a testing schedule 
that opens with South Carolina at College 
Park on January 11th. This will be the 
first twin-bill attraction of the season, as 
Duke also will be met in basket ball. 

The Terps lack quantity and height, only 
one man on the ring squad being as tall 
as six feet, and also arc short on experience. 
Izzy Alperstein, 145, and George Pyles, 
165, are the only letter men available, un- 
less Izzy Leites decides to resume the 
heavyweight job. He's not on hand at 
present, leaving this berth without a con- 
tender, although Harold Berry, soph grid 
fullback, may take a shot at it. 

Leaders in other classes are: 

120 — Judson Lincoln, a 5 foot 4V2 
inch soph. 

127 — Charley Door, a 5 foot 6 inch 

135 — Hank Gay-Lord, a soph, and 
Rowan Scarborough, a senior, who 
is bothered with a bad hand. 

155 — Fred Bach, soph, who was a foot- 
ball back. 

175 — Herb Gunther, a soph, who prob- 
ably is tops on the squad. Vincen 
Hughes, letter man in this class 
last year, hasn't reported. 

Pat Quinn, a 145 pound soph, also is 
making a good impression.

Three Games Exemplify 
Basket Ball Task 

Maryland's spirited but sadly inexperi- 
enced varsity basket ball squad, was to re- 
sume toil on January 3 for the game five 
days later with Penn in Philadelphia. Three 
preholiday defeats served to exemplify the 
great task that faces Burton Shipley in his 
18th year as coach. 

With only nine aspirants, none of whom 
was a regular last year, Maryland has 18 
more games to play and in every contest 
it will be facing greater assets, particularly 
as to experience. Under the circumstances, 
any victory the Terps may score will be 
an upset. 

Gene Ochsenreiter, who led the team 
with 39 points in the December tilts, and 
Jim Wharton will continue to be the for- 
wards, with Artie Woodward at center 
and Ashton Garrett and Bob Fetters at 
guards. Irving Gordy, Leib McDonald, 
Dick McHale, and George Jarmoska, who 
complete the squad, doubtless will play 
almost as much as the starters. 

Ochsenreiter, Woodward and Garrett 
arc products of Richard-Montgomery High 
of Rockville, Md., a small town about ten 
miles from the Universitv.

Football Squad, Tutors 
Deserve Much Praise 

Maryland's football forces wound u] 
their campaign November 30th with onl 
two wins and a tie against six defeats, bu 
those in close touch with the Terps hav 
more praise for them than if they ha) 
gone through an unbeaten season and re 
ceived a bowl bid. 

That march of 99 yards in the last fou 
minutes November 30th, to get a 7-7 ti 
with Washington and Lee was just a bril 
liant display of the spirit and fortitude tb 
squad displayed all season and which woulc 
be hard to match in the football realm. 
Great Display Of Grit 

This typical display of grit came in ; 
game in which Maryland had outplayct 
the Generals in all phases only to face ai 
almost impossible situation because prac 
tically all of the "breaks" had gone agains 

Starting the season with a jolt at tin 
hands of little Hampden Sydney and hav 
ing other rough spots along the way, thi 
players never lost "what it takes." The! 
had proved their mettle just ten days be 
fore when they upset a highly favorec 
Rutgers team, 14-7, and their feat agains 
the Generals was a fitting finale.

Maryland-Fifth Resiment 
Meet Listed March 7 

Friday evening, March 7th, has been 
It as the date for the annual joint indooi 
■mes of the University of Maryland 
md the Fifth Regiment Maryland Na 
Inal Guard, in the latter's spacious ai 
nory in Baltimore. 

Bug. Gen. Frank Hancock, Fifth Regi 
lent, retired, is chairman of the games 
immittee, with Gear; Eppley, Maryland 
Kiletic director, as vice-chairman. 

The games got an early impetus with 
vord from Don Lash, formei Indiana stai 
iiul one of America's greatest middle dis 
anee runners, that he would be an en- 
rant. Lash showed his old-time form re 
•ently by winning the National A. A. U. 
10.000 meter championship in reeord time. 
Pal May Be Rival 

I ash. who can step with the best at 
my distance from a mile up. probably will 
lead the field in the two-mile miss and- 
nit. one of the headliners of the games. 
LTiis event was won last year by Tommy 
3eckard, one of Lash's former teammates 
ind pals, in the reeord time of 9:05.9. 
\ckard. who told Lash how much he en- 
oyed last year's meet, likely will be back 
s his rival. 

i Other big features of the games are the 
jTUvernor's mile, won last March by Archie 
.an Romani of Kansas, and the Oriole 660.

L A. of New York, nosed out Jim Kehoe

hool boys. 

Program Is Varied 

In addition to the features, there are 
k interscholastic, six collegiate and eight 

A. U. competitions. 

DHOLASTIC— 70-yard sprint. 1,000- 
yard run, high jump, mile relays classi- 
fied, mile relay for Maryland Interschol-

half-mile title race for Maryland county 
high schools.

Smith Badly Slighted 
In All-Star Voting 

Maryland's football followers are abso- 
lutely "through" with all all Southern Con- 
ference elevens and all other all-star out- 
fits. When a center like Bob Smith, really 
all America caliber, can't run one or two 
in the voting on a sectional team, Terp 
fans are fully convinced that such outfits 
are the bunk. 

He played in nine games with hardly 
any relief and was outstanding in every 
one of them, tackling all down the line, 
intercepting passes and doing everything 
a great center should do. 

Maryland's geographical location in the 
loop doubtless cost him top honors. There 
just aren't enough votes in the upper end 
of the Conference to get a fellow any place 
even if he were a second Mel Hein. 

Smith, incidentally, got national recog- 
nition by being placed on the honorable 
mention list in the Associated Press all 
America selections. 

Here is the way one Southern writer 
sized up Maryland's situation: 

"For the second year in succession the 
University of Maryland is getting a raw- 
deal by those who select all-Southern Con- 
ference grid elevens. Last Fall the Terps 
boasted one of the greatest tackles in the 
school's history in Ralph Albarano — a boy

bade belligerent action. In addition they 
set up an Inter-American Financial and 
Economic Advisory Committee to sug- 
gest methods of closer economic coopera- 
tion among the American nations. 

In their second consultative meeting at 
Havana last July they agreed to establish a 
provisional administrative regime or a col- 
lective trusteeship by all the American 
nations over European colonial possessions 
in this hemisphere threatened with trans- 
fer to another European government. They 
also agreed to cooperate in ferreting out 
"fifth-column" activities "which may af- 
fect the institutions of American states" 
or endanger "their existing democratic sys- 

This political Pan-Americanism, how- 
ever, is not enough. It has not overcome 
Latin-America's suspicions of the United 
States. Our present maneuvers to acquire 
naval, land, and air bases in these countries 
have aroused considerable opposition, par- 
ticularly in Argentina and Uruguay. Our 
sensitive Latin neighbors cannot easily for- 
get our past exploitations and misdeeds. A 
liberal newspaper in Bogota, Colombia, 
warned its readers more than a year ago 
that an "eternal Good Neighbor policy is 
a delusion." Can they be sure that our 
suddenly awakened interest in Latin-Amer- 
ica is not inspired by ulterior motives, that 
our relations with them will not once again 
swing toward imperialism, or that fifth 
columnists are not just figments of Yankee 
imagination? Haya de la Torre, the leader 
of the Peruvian Apra which is probably the 

from Page 6) 

most democratic movement in the Amer- 
icas today, is advocating the organization 
of an "Indo-American Union" to combat 
United States imperialism and to keep 
Latin-America safe for Latin-Americans. 

Cooperation in political matters, then, 
does not constitute the whole of Pan- 
Americanism; it must be broadened to 
include all phases of the life of the Amer- 
icas. It must be supplemented by long 
range programs of cultural exchange, by 
the encouragement of travel within the 
Americas, by the extension of road sys- 
tems, by the further removal of commer- 
cial barriers, by the cooperation of the 
American labor organizations, by the in- 
creased study of the Spanish and Portu- 
guese languages in the United States and 
of English in the Latin-American countries, 
and perhaps most of all by cooperative 
social programs which will make democ- 
racy really work in this hemisphere for the 
benefit of all its people. 

We in this country can promote it if we 
will continue our "good neighbor" policy 
and mean it to the fullest possible extent, 
if we will show a genuinely sympathetic 
understanding of the radically different cul- 
tures in the nations south of us, if we will 
forget the color line in our dealings with 
them, and if we will refrain from using 
neighborliness as a cloak for imperialism 
and exploitation. 

Pan-American solidarity will only be the 
fruit of a rich and firm friendship. Its de- 
velopment is signally favored by the pres- 
ent European situation. 

Md. Stock Judging Team 
Wins 1st Place At Chicago 

Competing against teams from 24 other 
States, the Maryland non collegiate 4-H 
Club Stock Judging Team from Frederick 
County was awarded first place in the judg- 
ing contest at the International Livestock 
Exposition in Chicago, November 29 to 
Dec ember 7. 

The Maryland team was composed of 
William Martin, of Monrovia; Staley Hahn, 
of Frederick, and Harry Fouche, of Lime- 
kiln, and it was coached by Henry R. 
Shoemaker, '17, one of Maryland's leading 

County Agents. 

The Mankind team won the right to

winning first place in the State contest at

sible 1,800 points, as compared with Mis- 
souri's second high score of 1,527 points

Stevens Entertains 
"M" Club Board 

James W. Stevens, '19, President of the 
"M" Club, held a meeting of the Board 
at his home in Baltimore on Tuesday, De- 
cember 10th, at which time several mat- 
ters of importance were discussed. 

Members of the Board present were 
Burton Shipley. '14. "Mike" Stevens, '27, 
"Ed" Powell, '13. Geary Eppley, '18, 
"Knocky" Thomas, '28, Jim Kchoe, '40,

"Rosey" Pollock, '23, Bill Supplcc. '25, 
Chairman of the Homecoming Dance, and 
"Buckey" Clemson. '21, of the Dental 
School were present as special guests of 
President Stevens. 

Probably the most earnestly discussed 
subject was the "M" Club scholarship fund 
and the awarding of the scholarship. A 
committee was appointed to make a study 
of worthv- athletes, whether they are al- 
ready in school or prospective students, 
and present outstanding candidates for 
this award. 

It was proposed to publish and mail a 
circular letter containing personal news 
items by classes and sports to all eligible 
"M" Club members in an effort to bring 
more contributions into the Club treasury 
Powell, Stevens, and Cory will be the com 

The Board voted to again present a tro 
phy for County High Schools at the An 
nual University of Maryland-Fifth Regi 
ment Indoor Track Meet to be held or 
Friday, March 7th, at the Fifth Regimen! 
Armory in Baltimore. 

Plans for having special ceremonies al 
athletic contests to properly induct mem 
bers into the "M" Club were discussed 
It was felt by the members of the Boau 
that a special meeting room and head 
quarters for the "M" Club men on tli< 
campus should be provided. This matte: 
is to be looked into, and a report to h( 
made at the next meeting. 

President Stevens had a big Marylaiu 
turkey on hand for the boys and how the] 
did massacre that turkey! It was one o 
the best attended meetings of the Boarc 
for some time. "Mike" Stevens, head d 
the committee on "M" Club promotions 
presented the subjects for discussion.

Charter Day Celebration Presented 
More Entertaining Program 

Entertainment and real fellowship was 

the tenor of the one hundred and thirty 
fourth Charter Day Celebration, held Sat- 
urday. January 18th, in Baltimore. His Ex- 
cellency, Herbert O'Conor, 70, LL.B., 
Governor of Maryland, was guest of honor. 
In his remarks Governor O'Conor said 
that Dr. Byrd was making a "lasting eon 
tribution to the State, because future gen- 
erations will recognize what lie is doing." 
"Maryland can do nothing better than up- 
hold the President of the University." 

Moylan, Toastmaster 

The Honorable Charles E. Moylan. '24, 
LL.B., Chairman of the State Industrial 
Accident Commission, was the toastmaster 
and a most genial person to conduct the 
program of such an affair. Dr. H. C. Byrd. 
'08, LL.D., President of the University, 
was the official host with several members 
of the Board of Regents assisting: Judge 
Rowland K. Adams, '14. LL.B.. the Hon- 
orable Harry II. Xuttlc. the Honorable J. 
Milton Patterson, and the Honorable Hen- 
ry Hol/apfel, Jr., '93. In his remarks Dr. 
Byrd stated, "My objective for the Uni- 
\crsity of Maryland is not an increase of 
many more students but an expansion and 
betterment of its services to the State." 
'Phis needs no further qualification and 
the Alumni are fully in accord with such 
a plan. 

Pharmacy Centennial 

One of the highlights of the occasion 
was the recognition of the Centennial An- 
niversary of the founding of the School of 
Pharmacy. Dr. T. Ellsworth Ragland. '11, 
Phar.D., Presidenl of the Pharmacy Alum 
ni Association, was General Chairman of 
the celebration. When officially opening 
the celebration. Dr. Ragland said. "The 
University is proud of her Alumni, whose 
great deeds arc the eternal heritage of 
every Alumnus. Today we stand behind 
our youthful captain of education, proud 
of the accomplishments of our Alma Mater 
under his guidance. We fully pledge our 
Support toward the fulfillment of his vi- 
sions for a greater University of Maryland 

dedicated to the welfare of the people of 
our State. One who has given his unsel- 
fish and tireless efforts for more than a 
quarter of a century to the development 
of our Alma Mater, an institution for the 
people. I speak of our Alumnus President, 
and friend, Dr. H. C. Byrd." 

In a short, prepared address. Dean A. G. 
DuMez gave a brief history of the origin 
and development of the School of Phar- 
macy, called attention to some of the im- 
portant contributions which it had made 
to the advancement of pharmaceutical ed- 
ucation, to pharmaceutical research and 
to the improvement of pharmaceutical 
service within the State. He also stated 
that its graduates, who now exceed 2,500 
in number, are largely responsible for the 
high type of pharmaceutical service now 
available to our citizens and for the ef- 
ficient control exercised over the manu- 
facture, sale and distribution of drugs. 

Distinguished Guests 

Among other distinguished guests were 
Mrs. O'Conor, the First Lady of Maryland; 
Mrs. Moylan, also the wives of the mem- 
bers of the Board of Regents: Mrs. Adams, 
Mrs. Holzapfel, Mrs. Patterson, Mrs. Nut- 
tic, Mrs. DuMez, and Mrs. Ragland led 
the official family of the School of Phar- 

Speaker of the House of Delegates, the 
Honorable Thomas Conlon, and Mrs. Con- 
Ion, and Mr. and Mrs. Howard Bruce were 
among the distinguished guests. 

Fulfilling their promise, the Program 
Committee kept the speeches short and 
all were very interesting. Mr. James E. 
Ghcen, the principal speaker, was excep- 
tionally entertaining with his inspirational 
and humorous remarks. 

In the floor show an act presenting Fer- 
dinand the Bull took top honors. When 
you say Ferdinand, we think of Munro 
Leaf, '26, the author of the nationally fa- 
mous book. After the floor show dancing 
completed the evening. This year's cele- 
bration presented a new program which 
was received with much pleasure and all 

had more time for visiting and genuine fel- 
lowship among faculty and Alumni. Dr. 
Ragland has received many commending 
remarks regarding the delightful program 
as presented this year.

The Late Dr. Frank C. Bressler, '85, M.D. 

{Excerpts from an .Address by i/;irry A. 
Kohlerman, LL.B. \ 

With those who had the privilege oi 
sequent association with Dr, Frank C. 
Bressler there will ever abide the precious 
memory, not only of the work of an able 
doetor, hut of companionship with ,i beau 
tiful spirit, and an extraordinary combina 
Bon of grace and power. 

Dr. Bressler, who had risen from the 
ranks to the medical profession, was bom 
in New York City in 1855. His father. 
Frank Bressler. was born in Frankcnthal. 
Bavaria, came to America ami settled in 
Hew York, where lie engaged in business 
until the Civil War, when he joined the 
Fifty-fifth New York Zouaves. At the close 
;>f the war he returned to New York and 
iftcr a few years went abroad to superin 
tend the education of his son, Frank C. 
Bressler, at Frankcnthal, Bavaria. After 
three years in Bavaria they returned to 
Mew York. Later the family moved to 
Pittsburgh and then to Wilkes-Barrc. Pa., 
vherc young Frank C. Bressler attended 
he public schools, after which he pur- 
ucd a course in classical study under pri- 
vate instruction by an eminent member of 
he \\ llkes-Barre bar. He completed a 
general course in the State Normal School 
i'f Millersville, Pa., and then took up the 
tudy of medicine under Dr. Sparc of Lu- 
erne County, Pa. 

Charity His Hobby 

• In 1883 he matriculated at the College 
.f Physicians and Surgeons of Baltimore, 
Id., and at the same time entered the 
|ffice of Dr. J. \V. Chambers as a private 
upil. In 1885 he received the degree of 
octor of Medicine with honor. Several 
,j:ars after graduation he was appointed 
inical professor of children's diseases in 
e College of Physicians and Surgeons. 
He was exceptionally kind and consid 
ate to his patients, and his presents cre- 
ep a feeling of confidence and security. 
! was always his pleasure to help others. 
[All his life he was devoted to charity.

phan Home at Catonsville. 

Children Interest 

It is well known that he was deeply in- 
terested in the children at the John Fred- 
erick Wiessner Orphan Asylum, that he 
frequently visited them, and contributed 
liberally to their support and maintenance. 

Kind, genial and considerate, he bound 
those with whom he came in contact with 
chains of affection, which neither time nor 
death can sever. Generosity, honesty, and 
humanity were the outstanding traits of his 
character. He loved his profession, he 
loved the orphans, lie loved his fellow 
men. lie was interested in their sorrows 
and in their joys. 

And so, on May 18, l 1 )^. when the 
final summons came, loved and honored 
by 1 lis fellow men. in lus cherished home 
in this community where he spent so many 
years of his life, he gave his soul to his 
God, under whose colors he had fought; 
lie gave lus bodv to the earth of the State 

of Maryland, which he loved; and he 
gave his worldly goods to the ureal Uni 
versify of Mankind, for a research labora- 
tory, for the betterment of humanity.

in which the University has developed and 
the many services it is now rendering to 
the people of our State. However, the 
Governor did not explain how the Uni- 
versity can possibly continue to meet the 
demands of our people unless he docs u\ 
ommend the appropriation of sufficient 
funds to maintain and develop the Univei 
sitv m accordance with these demands. 

We, the Alumni, sincerelj hope thai 
Governor O'Conor, when he submits lus 
final budget to the Legislature, will 
ommend the appropriation requested by 
President Byrd and the Board of Regents.

Thoughts of Interest: 

Turkey-- Key to the Near East 

by W. M. Gewehr 
Professor and Chairman of the Department of History 

"Watch Turkey" is the basic thought 
of this item as the stage of the war shifts 
towards the Balkans. Again, the unsheathed 
sword of the Great Powers, as so many 
times in the past, threatens to set the 
Balkans ablaze as Axis pressure is brought 
to bear and as Russia keeps an uneasy 
watch just across the Rumanian frontier. 
These Balkans have figured in many a 
past war as a pawn in the game of the 
Great Powers — so much so that the word 
"Balkanization" has been coined to desig- 
nate a state of more or less perennial strife. 
Also these small states often have been 
called the European powder keg. But only 
twice during the last hundred and fifty 
years have the Balkan nations warred 
strictly among themselves. During the 
same period before 1939 the Great Powers 
became involved in Balkan issues over 
which they fought their wars five times. 
As a native writer has expressed it, thus, 
if the Balkan States have been the keg, 
the Great Powers have supplied the pow- 
der. And now again, a sixth time, these 
nations which actually during the past 
decade contributed more towards interna- 
tional stabilization through a series of 
Balkan conferences, than even the League 
of Nations at Geneva was able to do, are 
in a fair way to become the pawns of the 
international chess game. 

If one puts his finger on the key to 
this international rivalry in the Near East, 
it is the fact that here are Istanbul and the 
Straits which connect the Black Sea with 
the Mediterranean. Ever since 1453 these 
key positions have been in the hands of 
Turkey. Eor at least two hundred and fifty 
years it has been the traditional policy of 
Russia to get control of this highway that 
would let her out of the Black Sea and 
into the Aegean and Mediterranean. Had 
it not been for the Bolshevik revolution 
of 1917 Russia would have secured the 
Coveted prize after the first World War, 
but bv an accident of history defeated 

Turkey was allowed to remain in control. 
I can see no historical basis for any as- 
sumption that Stalin would now view with 
inaction and complacency any move by 
Hitler in the direction of the Straits, or 
through Turkey to the rich British-con- 
trolled oil fields of Persia and Irak. Doubt- 
less it is the fear of complications with 
Russia or Turkey or both which has slowed 
up Hitler's diplomatic blitzkrieg to force 
little Bulgaria into his Axis. And what, may 
we ask, has happened to enable this incon- 
sequential Balkan State to even dare re- 
sist the Nazi pressure? Just as the Axis 
met its first military reverses in the Balkans 
so here, too, has come this first diplomatic 
setback. Whether or not Hitler works out 
some prior agreement with Stalin over the 
Bulgarian impasse. Turkey is still to be 
reckoned with. At this moment Turkey is 
fully mobilized on her Thracian frontier 
(eastern Greece) awaiting the uncertain 
future as the Greeks are fighting the Ital- 
ians in Albania. If Hitler moves through 
Bulgaria into Greece, Turkey will play a 
role similar to that of Finland's in the 
north, for here Hitler will meet a foe de- 
termined to resist any further advance to- 
wards the Straits. 

Democratic Ideals 
Turkey enjoys the distinction of being 
classified as a dictatorship thoroughly com- 
mitted to democratic ideals. To many this 
seems strange, for in the War of 1914-18 
Turkey, herself an autocratic, semi-oriental 
despotism, was an ally of Germany, with 
whom she had close economic associations 
bj' reason of the German-built Bagdad 
Railway which ran through the heart of 
Asia Minor. Since the first world war, 
however, 'Turkey has passed through one 
of the most profound revolutions in all 
history. It all grew out of the Treaty of 
Sevres of 1920 and the plans to partition 
Turkey into economic zones during and 
after the war. 'The 'Turks did not object to 
those decisions which took away the Arab 

portions of their empire — Syria, Pales 
tine, Arabia, Mesopotamia ■ — but the; 
did want to be masters in their homelanc 
of Anatolia or Asia Minor. Even this wa 
not to be allowed because the Greeks wen 
given a large zone around Smyrna. In sev 
eral secret treaties the Allies agreed upoi 
economic spheres of influence in Anatoli; 
which they would exploit and thus sub 
jeet Turkey to continued despoilment. S( 
resentful were the 'Turks over all this, Mus 
tapha Kemal, their great leader, organizee 
a national movement whose program wa 
contained in a Nationalist Pact which as 
serted the complete independence and ter 
ritorial integrity of their Turkish home 
land. Thereupon, a war against the Greek 
was commenced. It lasted from 1920 t< 
1922, and ended in the complete expul 
sion of the Greeks. In 1923 at Lausanne 
Switzerland, the western allies made peac 
with the Turks on the principle of thi 
complete independence of Turkey am 
withdrawal from Anatolia. The Turks ha< 
no desire to recover the non-Turkish Aral 
lands. They were gone forever — but th 
Turks were now masters of their owi 
house, and after an exchange of popula 
tions made a treaty of friendship with tin 

Three Trends 
It was not enough merely to expel thi 
enemy. Mustapha Kemal decided to swee] 
away the old order entirely. Reforms fol 
lowed one another in bewildering fashion 
We shall direct our attention to threi 
principal aspects of these. First, there wen 
the political reforms. In 1922, the last o 
the line of Sultans who for over 600 year 
had ruled the Turks in despotic mannc 
was deposed. This last representative hac 
become a servile tool of the allies. He hat 
even been compelled to sign the Treaty o 
Sevres, which the Nationalists never ac 
ccpted. By this act the Sultan forfeited 
the allegiance and respect of the nation 
Although the sultanate was now abolished 
a representative of the dynasty was per 
mitted to retain the title of Caliph o: 
religious head of the Moslem world which 
since 151", had been vested in the Sultar

Class of 1910 Sponsors New Campus Gateway 

Now under construction is a new campus 
gateway, sponsored by the Class of 1920. 
President of the class is the Honorable 
William P. Cole of Maryland, Represen- 
tative in Congress, and its secretary is 
Col. (). II. Saunders, Commander of the 
12th Infantry, now stationed at Arlington. 
Va. Other prominent class members are 
Senator Millard E. Tydings, A. C. "dies"

The new gateway is located near Paint 
Branch, where a new road which circles 
the campus in the rear of Gerneaux Hall 
and the new Cirls' Dormitories, intersects 
the boulevard. The campus has now ex 
panded from the main entrance at Col-

Five Sports Attractions 
Fill Next Six Weeks 

Old grads will have plenty of reason to 
flock to College Park and Baltimore dur- 
ing the next six weeks for the attractions 
will come thick and fast until they are 
topped off by the big Maryland-Fifth 
Regiment meet in the lattcr's spacious 
armory on the night of Friday, March 7th. 

In all there are Eve stellar attractions, 
including the colorful all-Unix crsityNight 
program on February 1 5th that always 
packs Ritchie Coliseum to its capacity. 
However, the affairs before and afterward 
also should fill the big field house. 

February 8 — Washington and Lee in 
basket ball and Catholic University in 

February 1 5 — All-University Night, with 
a program of colorful extra-curricular 
events, basket ball with Connecticut and 
boxing with North Carolina. 

February 22 — Basket ball with Washing- 
ton College and boxing with Virginia 

February 28 and March 1 — Southern 
Conference wrestling tourney. 

March 7 (Friday night) — Maryland- 
Fifth Regiment imitation track meet in 
latter 's spacious armory in Baltimore. 

There will be a marked patriotic flavor 
to the extra-curricular events of the all- 
University Night program, which will be 
a fast-moving spectacle that has been al- 
lowed only slightly more than an hour to 
be run off. 

All of the double bills start with the 
basket ball game at 8 o'clock, except on 
ill University Night, when the tossers will 
open activities at 7:30. Then will come the 
extra-curricular attractions, with the box- 
ing match as the finale. 

Details of the Conference title wrestling 
meet have not been announced but there 
doubtless will be matches both afternoons 
and nights. 

Preliminaries in the bis.'. Baltimore track 
meel will be run off early in the evening, 

Willi the finals Starting at S o'clock. 


The meet promises to have the out- 
standing stars of the nation in its feature 
events, principal of which are the Gov- 
ernor's Mile, the two-mile miss-and-out, 
and the Oriole 660. Jim Kehoe, a Man 
land grad of last June, who is one of the 
topliners in the middle distance, will be 
in the Oriole 660. Right now he's shining 
in the big northern meets. 

Boxing Squad Surprises 
By Its Great Start 

Maryland's surprising boxers, who de- 
feated South Carolina and the United 
States Coast Guard Academy in succes- 
sive weeks, were to trade punches with 
Virginia at Charlottesville on February 1st. 

At the outset of the season, Virginia 
would have been rated a distinct favorite 
but the Terps' early showing made them 
almost equal choices. They were meeting 
for the eighth time and Virginia held a 
match margin by the slim edge of one 
bout, the actual scoring being 24 Vi to 
23Vi in favor of the Cavaliers. 

Three of the matches have been 4-4 
draws, the 1939 and 1940 meetings finish- 
ing that way. 

Here is the past record: 
1935 — Maryland, 4; Virginia, 4. 
1936 — Maryland, Vh\ Virginia, 4V2. 
1937 — Maryland, 5; Virginia, 3. 
1938— Maryland, 3; Virginia, 5. 
1939 — Maryland, 4; Virginia, 4. 
1940— Maryland, 4; Virginia, 4. 

Quint Finishes At Home 
After Hard Road Trips 

Man land's basket ball team had to play 
five games on the road before meeting 
Washington and Lee at home on February 
8th for a run of seven contests in Ritchie 
Coliseum that will complete the cam- 

Still seeking a victory after nine defeats. 
the Terps started the jaunt by playing 
Richmond on January 31st and on Febru- 
ary 1st and 3rd, respectively, were to meet 
Duke and North Carolina All these teams 
had earlier season wins over the Terps. 

The tossers were to get back home just 
in time to visit Navy on February 5th and 
the next night were to hike to Charlottes 
ville to play Virginia. 

The Terps have been playing interesting 
basket ball, despite that the woefully green 
team is lacking in good shooters, fully 
matching their rivals in floor skill. 

Coach Burton Shipley doubtless tool 
all of his ten-man squad on the trips. These 
include Gene Ochsenrcitcr, Artie Wood 
ward, Lcib McDonald, Jim Wharton, Dick 
McIIalc, Ashton Garrett, Bcrnie Ulman 
George Jarmoska, Bob Fetters, and lad 
Gilmorc. Only Ochsenrciter and Wood 
ward arc letter men and they were just re 
serves last season. 

Irving Gordy, one of the leading re 
emits, is out of the game with a broker 
bone in his left hand.

Maryland Football Situation For Next Fall 
Seen As Bright By Washington Writer 

Maryland's football situation for next 
Kail recently was sized up by Lew Atchison 
of the Washington Star as follows: 

Don't waste your sympathy on Maryland, 
m 'hearties, because the Terps are coming 
up with a pretty fair football team next 
season or a whole corps of "veteran ob- 
servers" miss their guesses. 

Only the powers that be know what 
changes, if any, are contemplated in the 
coaching set-up. One definite decision is 
that Dick Harlow is not coming to Col- 
lege Park this year, or any year. 

There is no criticism of Jack Faber's 
work or that of the other coaches. Indeed, 
the coaching board, of which Faber was 
the nominal head, acquitted itself honor- 
ably, considering the paucity of material. 

Loses Eleven Reliables 

But the important changes next year 
will not be on the coaching staff, but in 
the squad personnel. Maryland loses Joe 
Murphy and Bob Smith, the man who put 
the powder in its attack and held the 
line together, respectively, and their loss 
cannot be underestimated. It also loses 
nine other reliable, if not brilliant, young 
men and any coach will tell you a sea- 
soned reserve who strikes an even balance 
over the season is worth a half dozen in- 
and-out sophomores. 

Returning are Mcarle DuVall, on whom 
: certain pro scouts are sold as a passer; 
/ Bcrnie Uhnan, a rapidly improving back; 
Elmer Rigby and John Cordyack. fine 
! blocker and defensive player. You can paste 
Master Rigby's name in your hat right now 
as the Terps' next brightest star because 
those southpaw passes he uncorked against 
W. and L., his hard driving on reverses into 
the line were the tip-off on his capabili- 
ties. Add the name of Joe Iloopcngardncr, 
who, like Rigby, is as light on his feet as 
a jittery cloe. or Don Shockey, and you 
have a fair backficld to start off with. 

Frosh Ends Impress 


I lie I caps will be hard hit at the ends 

with Leo Mueller, Frank Dwyer and Dick 

shaffer out of the picture, but the first 

five names on the Freshman rostei iu- 
those of ends and the shortest is 6 feel 1 ' i 

niches. Coming up with them are seven 
linemen who go 6 feel 01 bcttci and who 
average close to 200 pounds -- and that 
ain't ham. 

At least five bettei than-average linemen 
will be back from this year's squad in Ralph 
Burlin, a really fine tackle; Reggie Vincent, 
Luther Conrad. Max Hunt and Ceorge 
Jarmoska. Vincent played a strong game 
at tackle and Conrad did exceptionally well 
at end after trying every position but cen- 
ter. Hunt, a guard, didn't get going until 
late in the season and only Bob Smith's 
presence at center kept Jarmoska sawing 
on his second fiddle. 

Tom Mont Dangerous 

The Terps have a sprinkling of good 
frosh backs, too, including a fellow by the 
name of Tom Mont from Cumberland, a 
6-foot 177-pounder who can carry the 
freight and who will be dangerous even' 
time he tucks the ball under his arm. We 
don't say it's a carload of all America tal- 
ent, but do contend it has possibilities. 
Twelve members of the freshman squad 
are out-of-State players, with or without 
much experience, as the case may be, but 
the majority of the leading talent hails 
from "home" soil. 

The freshmen had an unsuccessful sea- 
son, losing to Washington and Lee, V. M. 
I.. Western Maryland and Georgetown 
after tying Dickinson Seminary in the cur 
tain-raiser, but a session of spring training 
will help iron out the rough spots and weld 
them into a fairly smooth varsity pattern. 

This seems to be an accurate and fair 
appraisal of the 1941 outlook, although 
several other good prospects could well be 
mentioned. 'These include Jack Wright. 
back; Lou 1 lesson, cud; Bill Taylor, cen- 
ter, and Tony \ardo and Jack Dittmar. 
guards, all from Baltimore; Kenny Daniels, 
end. from Ilagcrstown; \ustm Kiev, a 
tackle, from Harrisburg. Pa., and George 
Simler, end. from Johnstown. Pa.

Jim Kehoe and Pete Pfeiffer, both of

former with the runners and the latter 
with the field men. All, of course, are 
Maryland men, Headley and I'feiffer in 
the class of '38, while Kehoe was gradu 
ated last June. 

Right now stress is being laid on relay 
teams for big northern meets. 'Two had 
engagements in New York on February 1st 
and srd. respectively. 

On February 1st, a medley quartet of 
Bob Condon in the -HO, Bob Montgomery 
and Randall Cronin in the 22(1 laps and 
'Tommy Fields in the mile, was to run in 
the famous Millrosc A. A. games in Mad 
ison Square Garden, and on the following 
Monday the 'Terps were listed in the Seton 
Hall meet. A two-mile team for this if 
fair was made up of 'Tom Devlin. Condon. 
Cronin and Fields. 

These and many others will be ready for 
efforts in various events of the Maryland- 
Fifth Regiment meet in the Baltimore 
Armory on March 7th and the Catholic U. 
meet m Washington the next night. 

Gene Ochsenreiter, ace quarter miler, 
who would grcatlv strengthen the iciiv

January, 1941 



Grand National Assembly which had been 
created as early as 1920 as the central an 
thority of the Nationalists when the reg 
nlar Turkish parliament at Constantinople 
had been dispersed by the British. The 
Grand National Assembly is now elected 
by full manhood and woman suffrage and 
women may be elected to the body. Mus- 
tapha Kemal was reelected President every 
four years from 192 s until his death in 
November, 1938, when he was succeeded 
by the very able Ismet Inonu. well quali- 
fied to continue the work of the founder. 
Although Turkey is a republic, the Peo- 
ple's Party is so thoroughly devoted to a 
program which envisages the well-being of 
the nation that no opposition party is al- 
lowed on the grounds that any opposition 
to the People's Party platform is not for 
the best interests of Turkey. 'ITicrefore, 
the presidency of Turkey represents a sort 
of benevolent dictatorship, but the point 
is, it is benevolent and enlightened and ab- 
solutely different from the familiar total- 
itarian dictatorships of Germany, Italy and 
Russia. It is thoroughly committed to the 
development of a genuine democratic sys- 
tem as the goal to be attained. 

\ second trend in Turkey has been sec- 
ularization. In 1924 the Caliphate or head- 
ship of the Mohammedan Church was 
'abolished as inconsistent with republican 
ideals. Furthermore, a purely spiritual ca- 
liphatee apart from the sultanate was ab- 
solutely foreign to Turkish traditions and 
so it was swept away and has never been 
revived. Numerous religious changes fol- 
lowed. All education, which hitherto had 
been the prerogative of the Moslem 
Church, came under the jurisdiction of 
the State. Religious orders were dissolved 
and their properties appropriated for sec- 
ular uses. Absolutely no religious teaching 
is allowed in any schools, whether Chris- 
tian or Moslem. In 192S the article which 
declared Islam to be the State religion was 
removed from the constitution and the 
President no longer takes an oath upon that 
faith. Even the wearing of clerical garbs in 
public by members of any denominations 
is forbidden as tending to emphasize priv- 
ilege and caste. All religions are now on 
exactly the same plane of equality, al 
though Mohammedanism carries a certain 

from Page 6) 

prestige because it was the State religion 
for centuries, and still claims the alle- 
giance of the mass of common folks as 
well as officialdom. 

A third trend of vast significance is 
westernization. Of considerable psycholog- 
ical significance was the abolition of the 
headgear known as the fez, which was so 
symbolical of the old Turkey. The wear- 
ing of western hats with brims was made 
compulsory upon all men and the new law 
was enforced rigidly and with drastic pen- 
alties for disobedience. A law for the re- 
moval of veils from the women was not 
made compulsory until it was imposed by 
the various provinces, but it symbolized 
the emancipation of women. For the first 
time men and women began to meet in 
mixed public social gatherings. Schools 
and universities opened their doors to 
women, and women began to enter the 
ranks of law, medicine, banking, the stage 
and even the judiciary. Women were en- 
franchised first in local and then in na- 
tional elections. The adoption of the Swiss 
civil code abolished polygamy and granted 
equality to both sexes before the law. 
Western principles were also introduced by 
the adoption of the Italian criminal code 
and the German commercial code. Western 
numerals, the western calendar, the west- 
ern system of reckoning the hours, and 
weights and measures, the adoption of 
Sunday in place of Friday as the day of 
rest and religious observance brought Tur- 
key more in stride with the west. Prob- 
ably the most drastic departure of all was 
the introduction of the Latin alphabet to 
replace the involved and difficult Arab 
system which kept most of the nation 
illiterate. All Turks had to learn the new 
letters and a law was passed compelling 
even adults to go to school until they ob- 
tained a certificate of literacy. Under the 
new impetus, great progress is being made 
in educating this hitherto backward people. 
Western Ways 

Space docs not suffice to relate the 
changes and improvements in Turkey's ceo 
nomic system due to national planning in 
manufactures, mining and agriculture. 
Enough has been said about republicanism, 
secularization and westernization to ac 
count for the astounding changes wrought 

under the impulse of the new nationalism 
In the light of this background, it become: 
clear to us why the new Turkey cast ii 
her lot with the western democracies ant 
became an ally of the British and French 
Although politically Turkey is still fa 
from the realization of a genuine democ 
racy, this is due to the heavy hand of ar 
autocratic past. If it is still a veiled dicta 
torship, at least that dictatorship has n< 
sympathy with the totalitarianism of eithe 
fascism or communism. It is thoroughly 
committed to democratic goals and is pre 
paring the people to take their place along 
side the western democracies. The ycp 
audacity of the new program challenge 
our admiration and sympathy. "The Otto

"Ma Hays It Tastes of Coal Oil!" 

MA IS probably right. The clerk who had to 
fit shoes and horse collars, measure out nails 
and putty, and draw kerosene couldn't alwavs 
stop to wash his hands before he handled the 
butter and crackers. And every so often the potato 
on the spout of the oil can would joggle off. 

Today, for most of us, the mixture of food 
and kerosene odor has ceased to be a problem. 
More and more of our food, packed by electric 
machines, comes to us in sanitary containers. 
Electricity does the work, too, of washboard and 
carpet beater. Automobiles and good roads have 
shortened distances to town and work. And 
because so many of the routine, unpleasant jobs 

G-E research and engineer/tig have saved 
for every dollar they have 

which occupied our parents' time are now only 
memories, we have more opportunities for enjoying 
life to the full. 

Practically every industry in America has 
helped to bring about this progress. And every 
industry, in doing so, has made use of the econ- 
omies and manufacturing improvements that 
electricity brings. General Electric scientists, 
engineers, and workmen have been, for more than 
60 years, finding ways for electricity to help raise 
American living standards to create More Goods 
for More People at Less Cost. Today their efforts 
are helping further to build and strengthen the 
American way of life.

Fellow Alumni: 

It was my privilege to be present at Col- 
lege Park on the evening of February 1 5th, 
and be able to attend the "All Universitj 
Night" program. This has been the second 
program of its kind I have been able to 
attend and I frankly admit it was the best. 
The basket ball game with Connecticut 
and the boxing match with North Carolina 
were very interesting. Maryland lost to 
Connecticut in basket ball, but won the 
boxing match with University of North 

The real pleasure and delight of the 
evening was the pageant, composed of hun 
dreds of students, portrayed most vividly 
the students' physical and cultural life on 
the campus at College Park. This pageant, 
which was most appropriate and colorful. 
could be divided into ten parts, as fol 
lows: Maryland flag bearers with band, 
drum and bugle corps, the gymnastic scene 
with graceful tumblers and dancers, the 
women's chorus and men's glee club, the 
pyramids in human designs, gymnastic, 
wall scalers, inarching to glory and spu ial 
drill by units of the cadet corps. 

This space does not permit me to nun 
tion the name of the many members of the 
faculty and student body who were iespon- 
sible for this splendid pageant. However. 
since Dr. L. B. Broughton was chairman 
of the "All Universitj Night" program, 

and as President of your Alumni VsSOCia 
tion, I want to congratulate Dr. Broughton 
and all who assisted him in making tins 
University function a ui\ sblendid su<

Congratulations: Tydings to Swain 

Dr. Swain Receives 
Remington Medal 

The nineteenth winner of the Reming- 
ton Medal, the highest award in the Phar- 
maceutical profession, was awarded to Dr. 
Robert L. Swain, '09, Phar.D., at a testi- 
monial dinner in New York. Senator Mil- 
lard E. Tydings, '10, led more than four 
hundred admirers in honoring Dr. Swain. 
In his remarks, Senator Tydings said, "The 
high type of legislative leadership which 
Dr. Swain has given to pharmacy for many 
years adequately qualifies him for our 
United States Congress." 

In the remarks made in honor of Dr. 
Swam. Dr. II. C. Christensen, secretary 
of the National Association of Boards of 
Pharmacy, seemed to sum up much of the 
honor lie deserved by saying, "The fact 
that it takes so many persons to describe 
him here tonight is in evidence of Dr. 
Swain's versatility and ability." The many 
endeavors in which Dr. Swain gave gen- 
erously of Ins time speaks well for his ver- 
satility and ability. During his term of 
office as president of the American Phar-

The address he delivered on this occasion 
has become a notable oration in the his- 
tory of American Pharmacy. 

Dr. Swain was referred to by those who 
spoke in his behalf as an outstanding con- 
tributor to the development of Pharma- 
ceutical Education. He is a noted Pharma-

Thoughts of Interest: 

Local Citizens' Groups: Sound Democracy 

by Howard M. Kline 
Professor of Political Science 

Public opinion is the guiding forte m 
.1 democracy. Public opinion is no more 
than a compound of individual opinions. 
I he individual citizen lias been rendered 
impotent in many respects by the intrica- 
cies of modern political issues and of gov- 
ernmental machinery and his bewilder- 
ment has only been increased by the ex- 
perts who have confronted him with a 
thousand claims and counterclaims, with 
charges and denials, testimony and rebut- 
tals. Where can lie find the unadulterated 
"facts"? And how can lie translate his 
opinion on those facts into official action? 

Here, indeed, is the crux of the problem 
of how to make democracy work. Critics 
from main quarters have come forward 
recently, some with sorrow and some with 
glee, to show that democracy — govern 
ment by public opinion — is not meeting 
the test. 

"Frozen Assets" 
In facing realistically the problem of rc- 
iniplcmenting this democracy, we need to 
write off certain frozen assets at once. Many 
citizens arc so completely engaged in the 
struggle for home and bread that they 
have neither time nor patience with what 
appears to them to be a remote or academic 
problem. (That their perspective may be 
short sighted does not minimize their con- 
viction.) Even the great mass of our citi- 
zens feci that they can spare only a small 
percentage of their time and energies from 
the major business of earning their liveli- 
hoods. Thousands are legally or socially 
disfranchised, and thus are removed from 
the arena of active participation. Other 
thousands belong to highly geared organi 
/at ions to which they look for the protec- 
tion of their economic interests. These 
pressure groups thrive upon the precise 
assumption that the constitutional ma- 
chinery of democracy docs not attend to 
then interests adequately. Still other thou 
sands (if run ( itizens, Frankly, arc not able 
to appreciate and understand modem is- 

sues, even if cogently presented. Lastly, the 
number of citizens who disqualify them- 
selves through sheer apathy and indiffer- 
ence is positively appalling. 

Even after discounting this large num- 
ber of our people, there yet remains a 
wholesome and substantial residuum on 
whom the burden of revitaminizing de- 
mocracy at the grass roots must rest. No 
doubt successive demonstrations of the 
practicability of some revitalizing formula 
will convince the doubtful and rekindle 
the spark in those now engaged in a sit 
down on their political responsibilities. 
Citizens' Groups 

The depression years brought again to 
the fore an old and highly respected insti- 
tution, the citizens' group, as a partial an- 
swer to the quest for some workable for- 
mula. Many citizens' organizations have a 
history of nearly fifty years, but in the last 
decade the idea has spread to numerous 
other cities and, in some instances, even 
into the foyers of state capitols. 

There is no single kind of citizens' organ- 
ization. In many communities the principal 
form is the familiar neighborhood improve- 
ment association; in others, the leading 
civic agency is the chamber of commerce, 
or one of the luncheon clubs or a labor 
union, for example. The dangers of reiving 
upon such organizations to do the whole 
work of citizenship are two: that their 
efforts may arouse the suspicion that they 
arc using their civic shroud to disguise 
their selfish interests; and that their ac- 
tivities in behalf of public issues may be 
confined to mere talk. It is not too much 
to say that we probably talk more about 
our public affairs than any other organized 
democracy. To talk and to think and to 
discuss these matters is imperative, but it 
must not stop there. 

There already exists in nearly even' com- 
munity some civic agency and usually a 
plethora of other organizations with one 
or more civic items on their agenda. What 

is needed, therefore, is not more of the 
same but some medium to correlate and 
integrate those now in existence. Each 
year the interrelations between the city, 
the county, the state and the nation grow 
closer. Each new research in local govern 
ment tends to prove that, regardless of 
name and form, these myriads of civic or 
ganizations are seeking essentially the same 
thing — better local government. 

Three Types Of Citizens' Groups 

Generally, there are at least three dis 
tinct types of citizens' groups, according 
to the intensity of their civic activity. First 
the research bureau. The municipal (01 
county or state ) research bureau is cxclu 
sivcly a fact finding agency, staffed with ex 
perts in the several fields of finance, per 
sonncl, organization and administration 
Main communities are still without the 
excellent services of such bureaus but 
where they do exist they have established 
substantial reputations for impartiality and 
accuracy. Their service is limited to a pre- 
sentation of the facts and figures, tlicrebv 
providing other groups with the basic am- 

Secondly, at the other extreme, is the cit 
izens' party. Perhaps best exemplified by 
the Charter Committee of Cincinnati, this 
type of citizens' group organizes its nieni- 
bcrship into ward and precinct units for 
active campaigning in behalf of their own 
slate of candidates. Throughout the interim 
between elections their vigilance is not re- 
laxed. From time to time in cities where 
no such permanent organization is main 
tained, existing citizens' groups have band] 
cd together into a city-wide federation for 
specific campaign purposes, but once the 
campaign is past they are faced with the 
necessity of cither broadening their pro- 
gram or of folding up. 

Between the fact-finding organizations 
and the citizens' parties is a third type — 
a vast and exceedingly miscellaneous array 
of citizens' groups which may be called 
civic pressure groups. Taxpayers' organs i 
tions, chambers of commerce, parent-! 
teachers' associations, city clubs, women's 1 
clubs, voters' leagues, community andJ 
neighborhood improvement associations,' 
in addition to an unbelievable range of S(H 
cial welfare, child welfare, health, labor,' 
veterans, recreational, planning and edJ 
cational associations — all these, and morcJ

Old Line Athletic Contributions 

By W. H. ("Bill") HOTTEL: 

Maryland-Fifth Resiment Indoor Meet March 7; 
Will Be Spiced With Many Great Athletes 

Maryland's and one of its flashiest 
efforts of the 19-4 1 indoor season will be 
the big invitational meet it jointly stages 
with the Fifth Regiment in the tatter's 
spacious armory in Baltimore on Friday 
night. March 7th. 

Unless plans go astray, the games this 
year are going to be bigger and better 
than ever before. 

(lean Eppley. Maryland athletic director 
and vice-chairman of the games commit- 
tee and in charge of the entries, had lined 
up many big boys when this was written 
and still was busily engaged in getting 

Wolcott To Compete 

I le had the biggest gun in Fred Wol- 
cott, the world's premier hurdler, who was 
to run in what may be the feature event. 
Talent to make him "go" was being sought. 
It will be needed as Wolcott holds the 
world outdoor mark of 22.5 for the 220- 
yard high and shares the American record 
of 13.9 for the 110 yard lows. He has 
broken the 45, 50 and 60 yard high hurdle 
marks in indoor meets this month, smash- 
ing them in successive weeks. 

Marie Meadows, world record indoor 
pole yaulter at 14 feet 6% inches, and 
others who beat 14 feet are in this event. 

Joe McCluskcy, of the New York A. C, 
who tied Willie Ritola, the great Finn of 
other years, for the most running titles by 
winning his 23d crown in the National A. 
V U. meet, will spice the two-mile race, 
one of the headlincrs. 

Charley Beetham, one of the best, and 
Jim Kehoe, the great Marylandcr who was 
graduated last June and who now is run- 
ning for the Washington A. A., will be in 
the Oriole 660 field. This race has occu- 
pied the No. 2 spot on the program, being 
second only to the Governor's Mile. Plans 
for the Governor's Mile were unsettled 
when this was written, but it again will be 
in the spotlight. 

Stars From Many Schools 

\1 Blozis, Georgetown's champion shot- 



putter — A. A. U. and Collegiate — who 
holds the indoor title, other Iloya notables, 
Navy's topliners, the best from the South- 
ern Conference, Virginia, Catholic U. and 
other colleges will be among those vicing 
for honors. 

These will join with the clubs in bat- 
tling for A. A. U. awards as well as com- 
peting in the collegiate classes, Relay races 
in both sections also will be on tap. 

There has been unusual interest among 
the schoolboys this winter and the compe- 
tition in this section promises to be much 
keener than in the recent past. 

Preliminaries in the meet will be run off 
at 6 o'clock in the afternoon, leaving only 
the finals for the big show that starts two 
hours later. 

Tickets may be had at the Armory in 
Baltimore or at the athletic office in Col- 
lege Park.

even Maryland Boxers 
ent to Title Event 

After having a 50-50 boxing season, a 
jch better record than could honestly 
ive been hoped for at the outset, Mary- 
,ld sent seven men to the Southern Con- 
ence title tourney that was held Febru- 
' 28th and March 1st at Columbia, S. C. 
jVirginia Tech, 4Vi-to-3 1 /2 winner over 
hryland in the final match of the regular 
:son, was the tourney favorite. The Terps 
]l North Carolina were regarded as se- 
Jjs contenders. 

|n the regular campaign. Maryland de- 
feed South Carolina, United States Coast 
jard Academy and North Carolina and 
w with Western Maryland. In addition 
Virginia Tech they also lost to Virginia 
j Catholic U. 

■ like Lombardo, former Maryland box 
I great, of the class of '3™, did a re 
pkably fine job in his first year. He 
ited with only two letter men and lost 
i of them after the third match. Of the 
j:rs, he will lose only one man at the 
t — Charlev Dorr — and he has an 



other season if he decides to return to 
school. Collectively it was a green bunch 
that had to be developed. 

Maryland's main hopes in the title tour 
ney rested in Bill Ilolbrook, 135 pounds; 

Yearling Boxers Provide 
Some Capable Talent 

Some pretty good boxers will come up 
to the varsity ring team next year from 
the 1940 yearling contingent that tied two 
matches and lost one. Ivan Nedomatskj . 
'37, one of Maryland's ring greats, coached 
the youngsters. 

Gene McGinnes, 120; Fred Gore and 
Lew Carter. 12"; Tom Jones, 13 5; Alek 
Bobenko. 145; Jack Goss and Leon Strauss, 
155; Lloyd Page, 165; Bill Walker and Lou 
I lesson, 175, and Jose Freixas and Tom 
Nardo, heavyweights, presented some good 

There appears to be enough assets here 
to balance the \arsit\ team next year. 

Hotsy Alperstein, 145; Herb Gunther, 175, 
and Lcn Rodman, heavyweight, who scales 
onlj 188. 

Judson Lincoln. 120; Charley Don. 12". 
ami Cordyack, Ids, were the other Terps 
to make the jaunt. 

Records Of Fighters 

Here is the regular schedule record of 

yuary, 1941 

the Maryland entrants: 

Lincoln — Two wins, three losses and a 

Dorr — Same record as Lincoln. 

Holbrook — Two wins and a loss, the de- 
feat being called on him for an alleged 

Alperstein — Five wins and a draw, the 
deadlock coming in a 15s pound bout with 
Taylor, of Virginia Tech. to whom he 
conceded 10 pounds. 

Cordyack — Fighting for first time in 
two years, he lost decision to Kent Belmore, 
of Virginia Tech, last week. 

Gunthcr — Five victories, one draw and 
a defeat. 

Rodman — Four victories, his last two by 
kayoes, and one loss. 

Varsity Basketers Lack 

Skill But Not Fight! 

Maryland's varsity basket ball team 
might have been woefully short on expc 
rience and aptitude in the season that just 
ended with a lone victory in 22 games but 
it surely was long on fortitude. 

The Terps had enough of what it takes 
to win the last game of the schedule with 
Washington College, 26-18, to avert the 
stigma of a season without victory. It was 
a gritty feat and noteworthy finale to a 
luckless campaign. 

Starting the season without a leftover 
regular, Coach Burton Shipley and his 
charges worked harder than any previous 
Maryland basket ball squad, and the team 
had the finest support from the student 
body accorded any Terp outfit in recent 
years. The students were generous enough 
to recognize that the players were doing 
the best they could with the assets at hand 
in combatting a hard schedule.

Comedy Play By 
Footlisht Club 

The University Footlight Club will pre- 
sent George Farquhar 's "The Beaux' Strat 
agem" on March 12th, 13th. 14th, and 
1 5th in the University Auditorium. 

This play has been presented more times 
than any other representative Restoration 
comedy. The plays of Farquhar enjoyed 
great popularity in Colonial America. One 
of his earlier plays, "The Recruiting Offi- 
cer," was in rehearsal at Valley Forge when 
the order to break camp was given. 

"The Beaux' Stratagem" was written by 
the brilliant young author while he was on 
his deathbed. He died in 1707 at the age of 
29, just four days after the play opened. 
He never saw a performance of his greatest 

In 1927, "The Beaux' Stratagem" had a 
successful run at the Lyric in London. In 
1928, the play scored a hit in New York, 
with Fay Bainter as Mrs. Sullen. The most 
recent production was that at Columbia 
University in 1937. 

The cast is as follows: Leads — George 
Filgate, Albert Coleman, Edith Simmons, 
Earla Marshall. Supporting Cast — Walter 
Neal, Jean Forbes, Jack Cherry, Wilson 
Ingraham, Guy Gantz, Jr., Irving Jacobs, 
Jack Snyder, Louise Love, Dorothy Willis. 

The play is staged and directed by E. 
Parker Dupler of the University Speech 

Leib McDonald, Jim Wharton, Irving 
Gordy, Bob Fetters, George Jarmoska, 
Dick McHale, Bernie Ulman, Ashton Car- 
rett, Jack Gilmore and Bob Porter played 
for the Terps. Most of them got in the 
majority of the games. 

Local Citizens' Groups: 
Sound Democracy 

(Continued from Page 6| 
fall in this broad category. In the main 
they use the findings of their own com 
mittees and the studies of the municipa 
research bureau, but stop short of activ 
political campaigning. Their regular nice! 
ings are devoted to committing problem 
to their committees for study and reconi 
mendation, hearing reports from thos 
committees, debating and adopting resolu 
tions, forwarding those resolutions to th 
appropriate authorities, sometimes accom 
panied by a delegation. They attend pubh 
hearings, call upon the mayor and or coun 
cil, and occasionally attempt to arouse othc 
citizens' groups to a common cause. In 
word, they are civic pressure groups am 
they employ most of the arts perfected b 
private pressure groups. 


Regardless of the apparent limitations oi 
the effectiveness of each of these types, her 
is an opportunity for every citizen to partic 
pate to the extent of his time and resource* 
Here are opened to him avenues througl 
which he can know the "facts" and corner 
them into official action. These organize 
tions are in many communities the onl 
groups which undertake to represent th 
public interest in the endless contests be 
tvvecn political machines and between scl 
fish interest groups. Their record of achieve 
ment is perfectly astounding whether con 
sidered in terms of the important reform 
adopted or in terms of the injurious policic 

Successful local democracy is the sin 
quo non of successful state or national dc 
mocracy. This is no longer doubted. "Wlu 
is not generally realized is that local sell 
government, to succeed, must rest upon 
sound basis of citizen participation in th 
local government process."
